  If you get complaints about missing modules, you probably haven't set
  PYTHONPATH correctly.
 
- You may also want to install psyco, the python specializing compiler.
- It makes commits more than twice as fast. The relevant Debian package
- is python-psyco

 Setting up a Mercurial project:
 
  $ cd linux/
  $ hg init         # creates .hg
  $ hg status       # show changes between repo and working dir
  $ hg diff         # generate a unidiff
+ $ hg export       # export a changeset as a diff
  $ hg addremove    # add all unknown files and remove all missing files
  $ hg commit       # commit all changes, edit changelog entry
 
  Fastest:
  $ cat ../p/patchlist | xargs hg import -p1 -b ../p 
 
-Network support (highly experimental):

+ The simple way:
 
  # pull the self-hosting hg repo
  foo$ hg init
  # merge changes from a remote machine
  bar$ hg merge http://foo/~user/hg-linux
 
- This is just a proof of concept of grabbing byte ranges, and is not
- expected to perform well. Fixing this needs some pipelining to reduce
- the number of round trips. See zsync for a similar approach.
+ The new, fast, experimental way:
+
+ # pull the self-hosting hg repo
+ foo$ hg init
+ foo$ hg merge hg://selenic.com/hg/
+ foo$ hg checkout  # hg co works too
+
+ # Set up the CGI server on your webserver
+ foo$ ln -s .hg ~/public_html/hg-linux/.hg
+ foo$ cp hgweb.py ~/public_html/hg-linux/index.cgi
+
+ # merge changes from a remote machine
+ bar$ hg merge hg://foo/~user/hg-linux

  Another approach which does perform well right now is to use rsync.
  Simply rsync the remote repo to a read-only local copy and then do a
 from distutils.core import setup
