I guess I don't understand then.  Because we have admin access to the
hg server on Savannah's vcs system.  But you say that is not the
idea.  Therefore I don't understand.

I guess I have no idea what "Weblate hosting" hosting is and assumed
it was some type of template you were using.

I know very little about hg.  But in git it is definitely possible to
have multiple respositories per project.  We put then in a
subdirectory named after the project.  So for instance 'guix' has
multiple projects in the subdirectory.  I can only assume that hg
allows similar capability.

I look in the /srv/hg/ and /srv/hg/health/ directories and it looks
like for hg we would need a convention of some sort.  /srv/hg/foo-dir/
or something.

Hmm...  Is GNU Health even using Savannah hg repositories?  I had
assumed so since you had asked about it in the savannah-hackers list.
