Help on pushing changes to fork

Nov 15, 2010 at 4:32 PM

Hi, I just created a fork last week (ShowColumnNumber) and I have been trying to push all the change sets into the fork in the past week.  (I'm using the "synchronize" function in tortoiseHg). However, I always end up getting "the connection is actively disconnected by the remote host". I guess it's probably because it is a new fork and there are too many change sets I need to pull from the main branch and then push to my fork. Has any one encountered this problem before? Or am I doing the right thing?

My intention is to create a new fork, sync it with the main branch, apply my patch and submit it as several change sets. I am pretty new on this so any guidance would be very appreciated!

Tried at a different place today. Still get the following error :S

<urlopen error [Errno 10054] An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host>[command interrupted]

Did you watch at your fork by yourself? It is empty!

Just take a look at the other fork:, and then on yours:

I recommend you to delete this fork, and start again. When you create a fork using codeplex interface, it should be created correctly (it should not be empty). Seems like you are doing something wrong using TortoiseHg (after fork is created).

Also, I would suggest you learning more about Mercurial

Hi, Oleg. I deleted the fork and tried "create fork" via codeplex website again.

The web form either gives me the following error:

The source control server is currently unavailable. Please try again later.

Did you create your fork via the codeplex website? Did I miss something? Thanks again for your help!

Yes, forks are created via the codeplex website.

Maybe site was really unavailable at that moment. Have you tried to do it again?

Best regards,

I'm seeing this same issue. I've tried creating a fork multiple times and while it gets created, it is always empty. The UI always returns an error that the source control server is currently unavailable.
