16:guilabel:`Source Path`
17	It is the path (or URL) of the repository that will be cloned. Use
18	the :guilabel:`Browse...` to choose a local folder.
19:guilabel:`Destination Path`
20	It is the path of destination directory, a folder with the same name
21	of source repository will be created within this directory.
23Under the :guilabel:`Advanced options` expander you will find:
25:guilabel:`Clone To Revision`
26	You can limit the clone up to this revision. Even the tags created
27	after this revision will not be imported.
28:guilabel:`do not update the new working directory`
29	If checked, after the clone the working directory will be empty. It
30	is useful when you have to clone a repository with the purpose of
31	central repository, or backup, where you have only, in the future,
32	to *push* and *pull*.
33:guilabel:`use pull protocol to copy metadata`
34	When the source and destination are on the same filesystem,
35	Mercurial tries to use hardlinks. Some filesystems, such as AFS
36	implement hardlink incorrectly, but do not report errors. Use this
37	option to avoid hardlinks.
38:guilabel:`use uncompressed transfer`
39	To use uncompressed transfer (fast over LAN).
40:guilabel:`use proxy server`
