Re: [wmii] [ANN] New wmii snap!

Given that apparently doing apt-get install mercurial (or equivalent)
is such an incredibly huge hurdle for some people to over come, and
that the web interface to hg in sucks so much, I have
mirrored the libixp repo at so you
can pick whatever kind of archive format you like, (please note that
this is just a temporary location and it will move to a more
definitive place soon, and that runs on my dsl line, so
please be gentle or donate so I can upgrade my bandwidth).

Best wishes
