So I just clicked that link, having never maintained packags in git before, nor having ever used mr. It failed quite handily for me: clint@clint-MacBookPro:~/pkg/pkg-ruby-extras/pkg-ruby-extras$ mr checkout mr checkout: no repositories found to work on I tried running ./make-mrconfig .. which did do some SSH operations and filled up .mrconfig. But still, mr checkout does not pull down anything. Before I dive into mr's inner workings, maybe somebody else has a clue? I've attached the .mrconfig...
