I had a problem running darcs convert . , and then pushing to a remote repo

darcs convert myrepo, and then push, works ok.

the issue appears to be that the file _darcs/format is missing a 2nd
line that says darcs-2. When I added this line, the push went okay.

thartman at ubuntulaptop:~/patchwiki>darcs push

darcs failed:  Incompatibility with repository

thartman at ubuntulaptop:~/patchwiki>emacs -nw _darcs/format #add darcs-2
thartman at ubuntulaptop:~/patchwiki>cat _darcs/format
