 Try copying your own mercurial repository into the "root" directory you are
 using, then from within the RhodeCode web application choose Admin >
 repositories. Then choose Add New Repository. Add the repository you copied into
-the root. Test that you can browse your repository from within RhodCode and then

 Using RhodeCode with SSH
 ------------------------
 
+RhodeCode currently only hosts repositories using http and https. (The addition of
+ssh hosting is a planned future feature.) However you can easily use ssh in
+parallel with RhodeCode. (Repository access via ssh is a standard "out of
+the box" feature of mercurial_ and you can use this to access any of the
+repositories that RhodeCode is hosting. See PublishingRepositories_)
+
 RhodeCode repository structures are kept in directories with the same name 
-as the project, when using repository groups, each group is a subdirectory.
-This will allow you to use ssh for accessing repositories quite easily. There
-are some exceptions when using ssh for accessing repositories.

+This allows you to easily use ssh for accessing repositories.
 
-You have to make sure that the web-server as well as the ssh users have unix
-permission for the appropriate directories. Secondly, when using ssh rhodecode
-will not authenticate those requests and permissions set by the web interface
-will not work on the repositories accessed via ssh. There is a solution to this
-to use auth hooks, that connects to rhodecode db, and runs check functions for
-permissions.
-
+In order to use ssh you need to make sure that your web-server and the users login
+accounts have the correct permissions set on the appropriate directories. (Note
+that these permissions are independent of any permissions you have set up using
+the RhodeCode web interface.)
 
 If your main directory (the same as set in RhodeCode settings) is for example
 set to **/home/hg** and the repository you are using is named `rhodecode`, then
 to clone via ssh you should run::
 
     hg clone ssh://user@server.com/home/hg/rhodecode

+Using other external tools such as mercurial-server_ or using ssh key based
 authentication is fully supported.
+
+Note: In an advanced setup, in order for your ssh access to use the same
+permissions as set up via the RhodeCode web interface, you can create an
+authentication hook to connect to the rhodecode db and runs check functions for
+permissions against that.

+:A: Make sure either to set the `static_files = true` in the .ini file or
    double check the root path for your http setup. It should point to
