Thanks.  One odd problem.

I committed my change, and then did hg push.  It said:

abort: push creates new remote heads!
(did you forget to merge? use push -f to force)

OK, so I need to fetch:

 $ hg fetch
pulling from ssh://
searching for changes
adding changesets
adding manifests
adding file changes
added 1 changesets with 1 changes to 1 files (+1 heads)
updating to 152:c00f461c45bc
2 files updated, 0 files merged, 5 files removed, 0 files unresolved
merging with 151:a42ec05e4313
2 files updated, 0 files merged, 0 files removed, 0 files unresolved
new changeset 153:7e3508f40d3c merges remote changes with local

Try again:

 $ hg push ssh://
pushing to ssh://
searching for changes
remote: adding changesets
remote: adding manifests
remote: adding file changes
remote: added 2 changesets with 2 changes to 2 files

remote: Invalid comment for merge changeset (must be "Merge")

remote: transaction abort!
remote: rollback completed

I think that jcheck is demanding that the merge comment must be "Merge",
but "hg fetch" generates "Automated merge with ..."

Surely this must happen to people inside Sun all the time.  So how do
y'all cope with it?
