Another thought that has occurred to me. Since we are aiming for
largefiles' inclusion into Mercurial 2.0 in November, and we are aiming to
complete the book for the 2.1 release in March, should we consider a section
regarding largefiles in the hgbook?
I argue that this is relevant because Mercurial is unique in that it is, as
far as I know, the only DVCS that provides a solution for users with very
large binaries in their repositories. Such a solution opens the door to
DVCS (and Mercurial in particular) for a new set of users -- a set of users
that otherwise would be likely to turn away from DVCS solutions entirely.
And since we want to present this as the "Definitive Guide" for new users,
it seems appropriate to include a section in the book.
I'd propose that we omit the low-level technical gunk and simply describe
largefiles from a high-level, end user perspective, as well as provide clear
steps for what should be necessary to get a repo up and running with
