:synopsis: Dialog used to make an archive of a repository
You can choose from quite a lot of formats to make an archive of a repository.
-There are the usual compressed formats. But it's also possible to make a plain
-folder of files in another place than the Working Directory (it's like a clone,
-but without the .hg folder). Can be useful for doing builds for example (think
-'svn export'). One can make an archive with only the files of the selected rev.
-Some people seem to use this to send changes to external people that do not have
-access to the repository.
