Ticket #122 (closed defect: fixed)
mercurial checkout mostly broken in 0.7.6
|Reported by:||warner||Owned by:||warner|
it turns out the short-term fix that I added for #103 caused all new hg checkouts to fail. The problem is that the 'hg clone' command does not, in general, accept a --revision argument (it can, but it requires backend support which is apparently not provided by the normal CGI server).
The symptom is that 'hg update' builds work ok, but if we ever need to do a full checkout, the checkout step fails.
I put a note in #103 to indicate that testing was still needed, but I assumed that worst-case the old code would keep working. I was wrong.
