Mercurial - push forked subrepository

Mar 30, 2012 at 11:24 AM


Want to develop a website based on orchard. To do this, I first created a fork of the orchard project, and now I want to add this as a subrepository of my project.

First of all, does this make sense? Or is there another easier way to be able to work on a project which is under development (so that I can integrate changes as they appear) and still maintain my own repository for it?

Secondly, when I added this fork to my repository and trying to push the changes, I get the following error:

pushing subrepo website to
HTTP Error: 404 (Not Found)
[command returned code 255 Fri Mar 30 14:11:19 2012]

Note that my project is myproject, and the forked project is a subfolder. Can anyone help me solve this issue?

Thank you

I found the problem, a subrepo url was wrong. Fixing it allowed me to just clone the project and commit it to my personal project.
