Create a new mercurial repo using hg init

When you have your mercurial docker container up and running, these are the steps to create a new repo.

On your server, login to mercurial docker container:

docker exec -it $SSHCONTAINER bash
su - hg

Then create your new repo:

mkdir repo
mkdir $REPONAME
cd $REPONAME
hg init
hg verify

Add new files and commit:

touch README.md
hg addremove
HGUSER=your_username_here hg commit -m "First flight"
hg update

Then Ctrl+D two times to exit hg user shell and docker exec shell.

Now the repo is available and can be cloned:

hg clone ssh://mycodehosting.example.org/repo/$REPONAME
