And from each other, if they please.  I.e., remember that Hg is a
distributed SCM. :-)

That's up to you and how your development process works.

For example, they could have a local *outgoing* repository. Or, you
might treat the remote folks as non-committers and have them send
their patches to a committer.

For outsourcing-ish relationships, I'd have a them have a shared,
local, incoming repository (mostly likely on a per-project basis) that
they have periodically pull from a designated corporate-side repo;
along with a shared, local, outgoing repo (most likely on a
per-project basis) that they push their proposed changes to.  On the
corporate-side, I'd then have the internal technical team responsible
for e.g., each project, have a repository that they pull the changes
from the outsourced group's outgoing repo (and then vet the changes,
run tests, etc. before integrating that with the corporate repos.

Hope this helps,
