Euphoria Ticket #671: http:// mercurial repository does not work


The below fails:

$hg clone

abort: '' does not appear to be an hg repository!

while the below requires authentication:

$hg clone

warning: certificate with fingerprint c2:63:92:ad:1a:c9:50:60:4b:4a:d3:d3:1f:d9:13:cc:bd:07:64:23 not verified (check hostfingerprints or web.cacerts config setting)

http authorization required

realm:'s Mercurial Server


So, the anonymous clone does not work.

Please help (I should add that I am new to hg).

which version of mercurial? version 1.8, the current one has relaxed some of the requirements for connecting to sites with self signed certificates. wiki:Mercurial has a link to a page that explains how to download the certificate from openeuphoria and add it to cacert.pem

but, that is for https, and I think you would also need to be recognized as a developer or moderator to be authorized.

you should be able to clone from

I think you have to add a repo like or

please update the ticket with any progress.

Yes, it works now, thank you. However, the links should be updated on this page, too:

(at least, to make it more explicit).

For me it was a blocker because, after going to:

I thought that repositories are etc (note that I missed the "/hg/" particle before "editors").

Anyway, there is no hg command to download (and update) all the individual repositories at ?
