tests on windows

I'm trying to get Mercurial's tests running on Windows.
I'm using the instructions here:
but when I get to step 3 - "Clone the related patch queue...", I am
having issues.

Maybe because I have not used cloned patch queues before (:
Inside my cloned crew directory, I tried running this:

hg qclone http://hg.intevation.org/beta/mercurial/pmezard/crew-stable-w32.mq/
 requesting all changes
 adding changesets
 adding manifests
 adding file changes
 added 13 changesets with 129 changes to 74 files
 abort: HTTP Error 404: Not Found

Not sure what that 404 means, and not sure if I'm using the right
command in the first place.


I assume the patch queue does something about the shell scripts being
skipped under windows.
Currently, I can run the tests, but 215 are skipped for this reason.
