Are there any general recommendations on how to access the repository for Windows users?

Michael: We will need a copy of the Mozilla Committer's agreement signed and returned to Erica McClure:

The form is here:

We also need someone to vouch for you.

Will try to find a link re: your question about accessing using Windows.

I already faxed the form to Erica this afternoon (about 6 hrs ago) and Axel said he'd deal with the vouching bit.
Comment 4 User image Marcia Knous [:marcia - use ni] 2010-05-07 15:24:14 PDT
Adding Erica for the form and Axel for the vouching.

Ah I guess I should have done that. Should I also have mentioned this is for the Scottish Gaelic (gd) localisation?
Comment 6 User image Erica McClure 2010-05-07 15:33:40 PDT
I have received Michael's Committer's Agreement.

Vouching based on my review in bug 471773.

This is ready for IT, please create an ldap account with scm_l10n hg bits. Make sure to send out an ldap password mail, too.

Created a mercurial account and e-mailed the password.  For general instructions on using our mercurial system - please refer to the docs here,

Unfortunately, none of those are specific to windows.  Axel might have some tips for you.

I'm trying to help Michael get hg working and we're running into some problems.  He'll follow up with details soon, I hope.  Will his ssh key be used to access the hg repository?  Has it been uploaded to the server yet?

Details are: when we tell Cygwin to
hg clone ssh://
TortoisePlink prompts me to login as. When I enter my email Putty throws a fatal error saying "Disconnected: No supported authentication methods available", leaving Cygwin to tell me "abort: no suitable response from remote hg!"

The easiest way to debug things is if you could join us on irc, #l10n, irc://

There are a bunch of technical details to figure out that go easier step by step than in one big debugging doc.
