The empty file mozilla/security/manager/.nss.checkout gets generated every time I build a fresh mozilla-central tree. dbaron tells me that this file is just used as a flag that's generated to indicate whether we should build NSS, or something like that. This file isn't being ignored by Mercurial, and that's bad. e.g. suppose I edit some files and then do a "hg add". hg captures my changes *including* the creation of the .nss.checkout file. IMHO, we should add this file to the hgignore list, to avoid headaches / accidental incorporation into mercurial repos.
