today I've installed Mercurial on Debian, but then realized it was the 1.0 version that is not compatible with new the repository format. I'm not sure which course of action to take, install Mercurial from source or from one of the three updated packages in lenny-backports, squeeze and sid. What would be the best way?
Also, I'm quite inexperienced with Debian (more used to Gentoo) and after reading some documentation, I'm quite confused about how to install unstable/testing packages, can someone point me some good documentation?
Update: Ended up using the backport package following instructions from that page: http://www.debianadmin.com/how-to-install-backports-debian-packages.html
