Where would someone get, for example, a Mercurial package that works on PM-enabled nightlies?

Meanwhile, since installoptionalpackage seems to no longer come with them, at least when I tried here on hrev46508, maybe the section mentioning it should be updated or deleted on the main page.

You can find/install one via a) HaikuDepot (GUI), or b) pkgman (CLI). The website probably should be updated though.

HaikuDepot is fully working now! Wikkid, I hadn't realized that I could install things that way. Worked great. Thanks! :)

But yeah, it'd be good to note that in some shiny spot somewhere. ;)

FWIW, I have changed the webpage some weeks ago, but something isn't right with that mecurial repo...
Some hg-savvy individual should have a look.
