Get the source code
To get your working copy of the source code, you should create a local clone of the repository.
First, create a new folder on your local machine where you want to download (or clone) the repository. Next, use TortoiseHg to clone the repository in the newly created folder, as shown in the illustration below.
Enter the url https://hg01.codeplex.com/bugnet as Source Path and click OK. You can continue reading a small guide on how to use TortoiseHg on Codeplex or you can also read the official TortoiseHG documentation.
Additional Mercurial references can be found on http://hginit.com/ and on http://mercurial.selenic.com/guide/.
Create a fork
Creating a fork of the repository creates your own source repository workspace on CodePlex where you can submit your changes back to the project via pull requests. This is the preferred way to submit your changes back to the project.
