Please note that you can rsync the git repos now, or ftp them.

You have read the readme? Only othersrc, htdocs and xsrc are supposed to
exist (and they currently don't get updates), pkgsrc and src I haven't
managed to convert yet (attempts were with fromcvs and hg-git, both fail
in a "no more progress" mode eventually; those were the options supposed
to work best). 

I'm not very impressed with hg itself right now either; neither the
language it's written in (as in, language def) nor the software are
particularily stable (I had occasion to find out how to repair a corrupt
repository already). From an admins point of view, "needs more ripening".
