You can control Mercurial push by adding members to your project and 
making sure their role is 'Developer'.

It isn't possible to make any service entirely private.

However, private KForge Mercurial services *are* available through the 
KForgeHosting.com, which is run by the original KForge developers:


If you are interested in using KForgeHosting.com for a private project 
please contact me directly.

6. Browse into the 'trac' folder, then find your trac.ini file. You 
should be able to edit the trac.ini file, and upload a new logo.

Best wishes,
