Bug Description

In http://lxml.de/build.html#github-git-and-hg the command for retrieving the current developer version is:

hg clone git+ssh://<email address hidden>/lxml/lxml.git lxml

It is obviously doesn't work because this is a Git repository, but not Mercurial.

Just replace "hg" with "git".

"obviously" is a bit of a big word, given the explanation right above the command. But I added the corresponding git clone command.

Does Mercurial with the "hg-git" plugin support fetching from Git repositories? Sorry, it was not clear that the "hg-git" plugin is required for getting the sources.
