Hi Andrew,

I've ended failry soon - on hg fclone phase

$ make
hg fclone openjdk;
abort: repository '' is
not local
make: *** [stamps/download-openjdk.stamp] Error 255

I use the hgforest from icedtea, with attached patch to work-around API
changes in mercurial 2.3 [1].


As I have no experience with hg, neither hgforest, I have no idea about
the error message.

Best regards
Michal Vyskocil
