I've just run the following:-

mkdir -p ~/dump/Xen
cd ~/dump/Xen
hg clone http://xenbits.xensource.com/xen-3.0.5-testing.hg

Got the source now. Is it safe to hg clone <http://url/for/source> as
root in a directory such as /usr/src?
Bit of a silly question I know but this is my first time with hg.

Also is it ok to cp -R  ~/dump/XEN/xen-3.0.5-testing.hg/ /usr/src
-without- messing anything up? I presume that I've just grabbed the
source code and that's it.

which should probably have a intro that says "No, but hg is pretty easy to

that cheatsheet includes the following:

    Mercurial is available at:

    You will also need a Python version >= 2.3

... so it's rather far from "available as a download"... but then, if
you're going to build from source, building the mercurial software is
failry trivial. (I did it once.)
