Here is a description how to use group authorization. This is also part of the
patch for the documentation.

With the patch it is possible to use groups together with usernames in the
allow_read, allow_write, deny_read and deny_write lists. A group name is
prefixed by an @. Groups can either be groups defined in the groups_section
(explained below) or Unix groups. If a group from the groups_section has the
same name as an Unix group it is used instead.

The groups_section

Name of hgrc section used to define groups for authorization.
Default is web.groups. Use the section to define the groups used
by authorization.


    allow_read = @devs

    devs = alice, bob, clara, david

Groups can contain other groups:

    allow_read = @devs, @testers
    allow_push = @devs

    devs = alice, bob, clara, david
    ci = hudson
    testers = @ci, lisa, mario
