We're going to do some dry-run integrations over the next week or so
in order to identify any kinks in the infrastructure -- and in our
integrators' understanding of Mercurial. During this time various
pointless changesets will be pushed up into the MASTER forest. When
we're done with that exercise we'll reinitialize (as in "hg init")
all the forests, and then we'll be open for business.
One of the many checks that Mercurial does when pushing (or pulling)
changesets is to make sure that the source and target repositories
are "related" by having the same initial changeset. If that condition
doesn't hold then the push (or pull) operation is aborted. We'll rely
upon this check to ensure that no changesets from these experimental
repositories accidentally make their way into the real, live,
