Configure your SSH keys under your Deveo Profile settings and start working with Mercurial.

For example, to clone the "bar" Mercurial repository from the "foo" project in "acme" company with SSH, issue the following command in the terminal:

hg clone ssh://

To clone the same repository with HTTP:

hg clone http://[DEVEO USERNAME]
