Thanks for setting it up!  I made some minor changes.

Which version of the manual are you using?  It looks like an older
version.  The syntax has changed, making things a bit simpler.

This, in particular, has changed.  The --in-place option to merge and
replay have been removed.  Instead, if there is an optional argument
on the end, the result of the merge goes there.  I am planning to
remove the --in-place option to fork, so there should be no commands
left with the --in-place option.

Fork is to create your own branch.  Mirror just makes a copy of an
archive.  You can use it to have a local copy so you don't have to
talk to the network so much, or to push things from a private to
public space.
