Hi !
I'm triing to clone a repository from a https server with a self-signed certificate and MacHG gives the next error:

Mercurial reported error number 255:
abort: error: _ssl.c:490: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed

I can't clone the repos.

    This error is coming straight from Mercurial. The thing you need to do is get the command line version of say a "hg pull" going. You will likely need to adjust some settings in your .hgrc file to deal with this.

    (Note I have a signed certificate through Dreamhost and they are working for me.)

    Sorry to say this, but it looks like a Mercurial problem and not a MacHg problem. If you can getting it working from Mercurial command line, but not from MacHg then it's my problem...
