I've recently run into a problem building the math and cmath modules for 2.7. (I don't rebuild very often, so this problem might have been around for awhile.) My hg repos look like this: * My cpython repo pulls from https://hg.python.org/cpython * My 2.7 repo (and other non-tip repos) pulls from my cpython repo I think this setup was recommended way back in the day when hg was new to the Python toolchain to avoid unnecessary network bandwidth. So, if I execute hg pull hg update in first cpython, then 2.7 repos I should be up-to-date, correct?
Nope, you need to execute the same steps in your 2.7 checkout if you're keeping it in a separate directory from your cpython repo that you're referring to
If the 2.7 repository shares the default repository, as described in the devguide, then only update is needed. This has worked for me for at least two years.
