Description (last modified by killyourtv)

Got lastest monotone client for windows from ​
I am trying to follow tutorial in ​http://www.i2p2.i2p/monotone but monotone client behaves diferent than mentioned in tutorial.
For example, if I execute

mtn --db="" read < keys.txt

it does not store anything in


but loads that keys directly in previously created database.

If I follow section Setting up trust evaluation hooks
then it mentions


folder that is not used at all.

Please provide link to a monotone version that was used to write that tutorial or update documentation.

This site (www.i2p2.i2p) used to be the I2P eepsite mirror but it hasn't been updated for a few years. You want to follow http://i2p-projekt.i2p/en/get-involved/guides/monotone which is linked from and in the router console.

Where did you find a reference to www.i2p2.i2p?

http://i2p-projekt.i2p/en/get-involved/guides/monotone contains almost the same information with that .monotone folder.

PS. did a i2p.i2p pull successfully, but checkout shows

mtn: misuse: branch 'i2p.i2p' is empty

with monotonerc file and there is no matter if trusted_signers is empty or not. I created .monotone folder manually and put monotonerc file in that folder.

http://www.i2p2.i2p/ isn't functioning, based upon my testing.

When I set up my local copy of the monotone database based on the available instructions, I had no issues.

I just tested the monotonerc file in the suggested manner, and saw the following message during a check-out:

mtn: misuse: branch 'i2p.i2p' is empty

Adding in the trusted_signers section allows for a successful check-out.

As far as I can tell there are no issues either with the given instructions on http://i2p-projekt.i2p/en/get-involved/guides/monotone or with the suggested monotonerc file so I am going to close this issue. Please re-open if necessary.
