I'm trying to install the pr2simulator stack which requires (pr2mechanism), which in turn requires (pr2_mechanism_msgs). This is what I tried:

cd ros_ws
rosws set pr2_mechanism_msgs --hg
rosws update pr2_mechanism_msgs

This doesn't seem to work. The site looks down. I found the pr2simulator stack on github, but pr2_mechanism_msgs isn't hosted there. Can someone please tell me how to get this working? Is there an alternate hosting location?

I tried an hg clone command too and it doesn't work. says the site is down.

I'm on Fedora 18: I must install these from source.

I found this question which is about the same thing, but the answer was to install the deb file which doesn't apply to me:

It was down. Also, the hg URL is, not just as listed on the wiki page.

$ rosws set pr2_mechanism_msgs --hg
