Probably he would need to update his local repo's copy of .hgsub and
commit. That should do the trick, no? There would still be the
problem that he probably can't safely push from that repo, because
that would apply the same change to the master repo.
I wonder if instead we could
(1) remove the "xemacs" and "xemacs-packages" subrepos from the
(2) readd them as a local change on Tux and other websites that update
directly from the master repo;
(3) have the commit trigger merge from the master repo.
We could do that, but Adrian's idea was that you build the website
locally. I'd like the repo to provide the capability. I just don't see
what the big deal is: You do get extra copies, but you can either share
the repos (see my other e-mail) or just deal with the overhead - disk
space seems pretty inflationary these days.
