====== Using Qct with Monotone ======

You must specify a get_passphrase() in your ~/.monotone/monotonerc in order for
Qct to commit files.  Note that this has obvious security ramifications,
but dem's the breaks.

function get_passphrase(keypair_id)
  return "myphrase"
end


If you use the selected change feature, it is suggested that you add
.qct/ to your .mtn-ignore mask to prevent the backed up working
directory files from showing up in the file list.

Qct's support for adding ignore masks for unknown files only works
properly when Qct is run out of the repository root (where .mtn-ignore
is).  Patches welcome for removing this shortcoming.

If you start qct inside the repository root (where .mtn/ resides), qct
will autodetect the Monotone back-end.  If you start it elsewhere in the
repository directory tree, you will need to supply a command line
argument to specify Monotone:   qct --mtn

PS:  The Monotone back-end is not as well tested as I would like.  If
you find a bug or find support for a particular mtn feature not to your
liking, please send me an e-mail.
