    1 We generally treat the Mercurial repositories for PySoy as wikis - fairly easy to get to, but we do want to keep it tidy.  Toward that end, first commit should be done to the mailing list to ensure the metadata is correct.  Mercurial makes this really simple, edit your ~/.hgrc file with your name, email address, and SMTP password.  Note that if you use GMail, you'll need to [https://accounts.google.com/b/0/IssuedAuthSubTokens?hl=en create an application-specific password].

     4Some Notes: ~ is your home directory in linux. To view hgrc in nautilus(File browser), first show hidden files and then you can edit your hgrc file or you could just do a "gedit ~/.hgrc" or "vim ~/.hgrc" on a terminal. If you couldn't find an already existing ~/.hgrc file, DON'T panic. Just create a file with name .hgrc in your home directory using gedit or some text editor. Or you could do a "vim ~/.hgrc" or "gedit ~/.hgrc". The format for the ~/.hgrc file is as follows.
