Monotone Best Practices
The purpose of this page is to create a set of best practices for the use of pidgin monotone. When deemed worthy, it will be merged into UsingPidginMonotone.
The above command will create a inode cache of your current workspace. This will dramatically reduce the runtime of mtn status, commit, etc. Technically this method is less safe then the default behavior, as under certain circumstances, some changes may not be noticed. Please read the official docs for more information.
Pulling New Branches
If you did not do an initial pull with mtn pull mtn.pidgin.im im.pidgin.* it is possible that you will not automagically pull new branches. If you have noticed a lack of branches in mtn ls branches you can remedy this one of two ways.
From a working copy:
mtn pull --set-default mtn.pidgin.im "im.pidgin.*"
mtn -d <path to your pidgin database> pull --set-default mtn.pidgin.im "im.pidgin.*"
