    you want to clone, and it may include a "user:password" part, e.g.
    <tt>http://drh:secret@www.fossil-scm.org/fossil</tt>. You can
    call the new repository anything you want - there are no naming
    restrictions.  As an example, you can clone the fossil repository
    this way:</p>
    
    <blockquote>
    <b>fossil clone http://www.fossil-scm.org/fossil myclone.fossil</b>
    </blockquote>

    <p>The new local copy of the respository is stored in a single file,
    which in the example above is named "myclone.fossil".
    You can name your repositories anything you want.  The ".fossil" suffix
    is not required.</p>

................................................................................
    <b>fossil new </b><i> repository-filename</i>

</blockquote><h2>Configuring Your Local Repository</h2><blockquote>
    
    <p>When you create a new repository, either by cloning an existing
    project or create a new project of your own, you usually want to do some
    local configuration.  This is accomplished using a webbrowser.  First
    start a fossil webserver like this:</p>
    
    <blockquote>
    <b>fossil ui </b><i> repository-filename</i>
    </blockquote>

    <p>This creates a mini-webserver listening on port 8080.  You can
    specify a different port using the <b>-port</b> option on the command-line.
    After the server is running, fossil will then attempt to launch your
    web browser and make it point to this web server.  If your system
    has an unusual configuration, fossil might not be able to figure out
    how to start your web browser.  In that case, start the web browser
    yourself and point it at http://localhost:8080/.  Click on the
    "Setup" link on the menu bar to start configuring your repository.</p>
