I've been trying to submit the test to mercurial following the instructions
at http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/Testing/Submission/, and have run into
trouble, apparently with authentication, although I am using the username
and password that I always use to get into the W3C site, e.g. at
http://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/1/testgrants2-200409/?login. Isn't my usual
W3C un/pw supposed to be good enough for submissions?

The full details:

I am using hg under Ubuntu, and have created ~/.hgrc with the following

username = Aharon Lanin <aharon@google.com>
verbose = True

w3c.prefix = https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/
w3c.username = my_user_name
w3c.password = my_password

(obviously I use my real username and password, not these placeholders)

I have also updated html/.hg/hgrc at the top level of the cloned repository
to have the following contents:

default = https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/html/
default-push = https://my_user_name@dvcs.w3.org/hg/html/

Everything goes well until I get to the hg push. I then get:

pushing to https://alanin@dvcs.w3.org/hg/html/
searching for changes
1 changesets found
http authorization required
realm: W3C Mercurial Repository
user: my_user_name

Please note that it knows my username, but asks me for my password, which
is strange, since the .hgrc has my password. When I enter my password, it
sits quietly for a long time until it crashes with a blown stack, which, I
gather from the web, apparently means an authentication failure.

What am I doing wrong?
