    7979Finroc support various kinds of source control systems like e.g. subversion or mercurial. 
    8080`finroc_get` uses a database that contains information about the components available, files or programs that can be found there and what source control system to use and how.

    8282Thus, it makes life easier by abstracting from the underlying technology.

    103103By default `finroc_get` lets the underlying scm handle all communication with the user itself. 
    104104Hence, if we had not prepared our `~/.hgrc` file with some mercurial authentication data, `mercurial` would ask for our credentials for each repository. 
    105 `finroc_get --help` tells us, that thesse credentials also can be provided via command line options `--username` and `--password`. 
     105`finroc_get --help` tells us, that these credentials also can be provided via command line options `--username` and `--password`. 
    106106However, to not make our password visible to others in e.g. the output of `ps aux`, providing only a username makes `finroc_get` ask for the password using a non-echo prompt. 
    107107Then, `finroc_get` forwards this authentication data to the underlying tool.

    114114In most cases, these are not needed to use the main contents of the requested components. 
    115 Therefore, `finroc_get` lists them, asks if it sould download them and defaults to no if you just hit enter.

    116116When you run `finroc_get` with a component that was already downloaded without its optional dependencies, you will be asked about them again.
