I saw your blog entry
Thanks for posting that.

I usually do all this on a Mac, but recently needed to try it on a
windows machine.
So I had a Windows 2000 machine with cygwin and MKS installed on it,
I downloaded and installed the Mercurial bundle and it seemed to work
great from a cygwin shell window. But I was just using 'hg clone', didn't
need the forest extension yet.

I also installed the latest NetBeans 6 plus the Mercurial plugin, worked
amazingly well, but this wasn't a jdk repository.
Trick was to start up NetBeans from the cygwin shell (running
c:/program files/netbeans 6/bin/netbeans.exe) so that NetBeans was started
with the right PATH setting to find hg.
