Hi Kai,

Thanks for the info. I do followed all the steps you mentioned but when I reach the push step happens that things start to upload but in the end that is what occurs:

pushing to https://address@hidden/edu159/octave-subrepo
pushing subrepo gnulib-hg to https://address@hidden/edu159/octave-subrepo/gnulib-hg
searching for changes
http authorization required                                                    
realm: Bitbucket.org HTTP                                                      
user: edu159                                                                   
sending [ <=>                                                 ] 45232/45168 -1s

I have to interrupt the process because it hangs. As you can see seems that more bytes are upload than expected! (45232/45168). Did you encounter similar problems while testing this option? Any ideas?

Hi Eduardo,

Regarding your development repository you should maintain an own copy of the official Octave repository. For example last year Jordi was nice to provide us a repository [1]. But as we have discussed in IRC you can also use another public service with free plans like Google-Code or Bitbucket. For the latter one you should repeat the following steps in order to setup your repository:

1. Create a new _public_ repository at Bitbucket, e.g. "myoctave", assumed account there is "myLogin"
2. Clone the official Octave repository to somewhere on your filesystem.

hg clone http://www.octave.org/hg/octave

3. Rename the "octave" folder to "myoctave" (maybe unnecessary, just to avoid confusion)
4. Edit "myoctave/.hg/hgrc"


5. Edit "myoctave/.hgsub"

gnulib-hg = http://www.octave.org/hg/octave/gnulib-hg

This should do all the trick. Now push to your development repository

hg push gsoc-dev

Now you can start your project. Another must reads are [2] and [3]. This will make it easier for others to follow your development process. Please can you give me feedback about the success of this procedure? If so I will extend [2] about this way of creating a development repository.
