 I am reopening to update tests and docs.

 I am having two troubles, one solved.


 Failed test-archive-symlinks.t: output changed
 # Ran 436 tests, 25 skipped, 1 failed.

 I do not bother with the skipped ones, seems depend on packages I don't
 have installed.

 ISTR having the failure before and solved somehow, was trivial, did not

 Have been reported in the web, but I could not fix it up to this comment.

 Second, I solved:

 There is a simple build test to be run after installed:

 hg debuginstall (actually, I ran env LC_ALL=C hg debuginstall, for
 reporting here)

 checking encoding (ascii)...
 checking Python lib (/usr/lib/python2.7)...
 checking installed modules (/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/mercurial)...
 checking templates (/usr/lib/python2.7/site-
 checking commit editor...
 checking username...
  no username supplied (see "hg help config")
  (specify a username in your configuration file)
 1 problems detected, please check your install!

 cat >> ~/.hgrc < "EOF"
 username = <user_name> <your at mail>

 where <your at mail> is optional, I did not use.

 I intend to include at least these instructions for the second problem in
 the book, if there are no objections.
