mercurial

Mercurial is a fast, lightweight Source Control Management system designed for efficient handling of very large distributed projects.

Its features include:

  • O(1) delta-compressed file storage and retrieval scheme
  • Complete cross-indexing of files and changesets for efficient exploration of project history
  • Robust SHA1-based integrity checking and append-only storage model
  • Decentralized development model with arbitrary merging between trees
  • High-speed HTTP-based network merge protocol
  • Easy-to-use command-line interface
  • Integrated stand-alone web interface
  • Small Python codebase

This package contains the architecture dependent files.

mercurial-common

Mercurial is a fast, lightweight Source Control Management system designed for efficient handling of very large distributed projects.

This package contains the architecture independent components of Mercurial, and is generally useless without the mercurial package.

hg-ssh

Restricted ssh login shell for Mercurial

[email protected]:~# man hg-ssh
HG-SSH(8)                      Mercurial Manual                      HG-SSH(8)

NAME
       hg-ssh - restricted ssh login shell for Mercurial

SYNOPSIS
       hg-ssh repositories...

DESCRIPTION
       hg-ssh is a wrapper for ssh access to a limited set of mercurial repos.

       To  be  used  in  ~/.ssh/authorized_keys with the "command" option, see
       sshd(8):   command="hg-ssh   path/to/repo1    /path/to/repo2    ~/repo3
       ~user/repo4"  ssh-dss  ...   (probably together with these other useful
       options: no-port-forwarding,no-X11-forwarding,no-agent-forwarding)

       This allows pull/push over ssh from/to the repositories given as  argu-
       ments.

       If  all your repositories are subdirectories of a common directory, you
       can allow shorter paths with:  command="cd  path/to/my/repositories  &&
       hg-ssh repo1 subdir/repo2"

       You  can  use  pattern matching of your normal shell, e.g.: command="cd
       repos && hg-ssh user/thomas/* projects/{mercurial,foo}"

       You can also add a --read-only flag to allow read-only access to a key,
       e.g.: command="hg-ssh --read-only repos/*"

BUGS
       Probably  lots,  please  post  them  to the mailing list (see Resources
       below) when you find them.
