I said this to Reed in person, but for the record: I don't think it's a good use of either his or my time to be pointy-haired (sorry Reed) gatekeepers here. Hg, which I'm starting to dislike intensely, really makes you clone to do sandboxed development (perhaps named branches may help some day). So I expect a lot of cloning. As Woody Allen said in "Sleeper", "never clone alone". Can we make it easier and more distributed and less file-ticket-to-bug-IT-and-brendan to clone what needs to be cloned?

That would be a question for aravind/reed. I do think that anyone with Hg access should be able to clone any tree they want in their personal area (hg.mozilla.org/~bsmedberg). And that small groups should be able to create feature repos at will, e.g. hg.mozilla.org/playground

Note that IT doesn't have to do a clone... they can just create an empty repo and the person using the branch can pull/push to it to get things started.

I'm not saying it matters to me either way, but the benefit of cloning on the server vs cloning locally and pushing to an empty repo is that the server clone will end up sharing the majority of the repo data on the server and thus save significantly on disk space over time. Other than that it's all the same AFAIK.
