I added an “ongoing work” and “tools” sections to the Mozilla 2 page.
The pork suite now has a wiki page.
#mercurial regulars kindly educated me about hg branches. Turned out hgimportsvn tries to map some subversion concepts onto hg branches which causes problems for people checking out pork using never versions of hg. For people googling for this issue: do “hg up trunk ; hg branch -f default; hg commit” to produce a magic empty revision to fix this problem.
If you have tried to compile pork before and gave up in despair, please try again using the pork wiki page for instructions.
