     6== Clone the Repository and Select a Branch ==

     8To start working with Pidgin from Mercurial, you'll probably want to clone our main repository:
     9
    610{{{
    7 hg clone https://bitbucket.org/pidgin/main
     11hg clone https://bitbucket.org/pidgin/main pidgin
    812}}}
     13
     14This will give you a `pidgin` directory with the 3.0.0 development code by default.  If you want to develop against Pidgin 3.0.0, you're all set!
     15
     16Naturally, Pidgin has a number of branches within its repository, and these branches handle various projects including our maintenance of Pidgin 2.x.y.  We won't go into all the branches here, as there are a lot of them, but we know some people would like to work against Pidgin 2.x.y instead of 3.0.0.  In order to do that, clone the repository as above, but then do this:
     17
     18{{{
     19cd pidgin
     20hg up release-2.x.y
     21}}}
     22
     23You now have a Pidgin 2 tree to work with.  Happy hacking!
