Currently matlab-emacs dwells in sourgeforge (as a git repository). It
has been proposed to move/mirror it either to github or gitlab, because
of pull-request.

So I made an experiment. I mirrored the sourceforge repository in gitlab

I made a fork

In that fork I created new git branch new-feature and added a relative
trivial commit.

Then I thought to add
fork = git+ssh://

And indeed

hg in fork

Shows me
changeset: 690:6e245a2cbb2e
bookmark: new-feature
user: Uwe Brauer <>
date: Sat Apr 15 07:44:02 2023 -0200
summary: New file explaining the use of the python engine

However when I run

hg pull -B new-feature fork
| pulling from git+ssh://
| Warning: Permanently added ',' (ECDSA) to the list of known hosts.
| Warning: Permanently added ',' (ECDSA) to the list of known hosts.
| abort: ref n$Z,�.�V_�P��5��$A� not found on remote server

So hg pull -u fork


Any idea what is going on?
