I think the problem we have is that the authoritative source of the code is not ours and our changes need to be merged cleanly with it.

So I think our clone which gets pulled each night from opensolaris upstream should remain read-only. We then need a clone of this, which maintains our patch queue and where final revision patches get pushed to.

So we will need a clone of *that* where development takes place, and after review final changes can get pushed up to the one above as a single change set.

Does that sound sane?

It might not, as I don't know mercurial. I *really* need to spend some time learning it but time is really scarce at the moment :/

If anyone is able/willing to step up to this and prescribe a process for managing our source control, I'd be very grateful!
