Mercurial SCM pages do not show an example of anonymous or read only access

Detailed description
Users without write access want to download a public source code repository offered in Mercurial SCM.

Current behaviour:

Message is shown on the "Source Code Repository" page like
Anonymer Mercurial Zugang
Anonymous browsing not available using ssh access.

Example: https://wald.intevation.org/scm/?group_id=71

Expected behaviour:
command listed that can do an anonymous clone with Mercurial SCM
(e.g. with https instead of ssh).

I have created a ticket for this in the software vendor's internal ticket system.

Until the page gets updated you can use the following sequence:
1. click on "[Browse Hg Repository]"
2. in the repository view you can see "Mercurial > ppgen > ppgen", right-click on the rightmost "ppgen" and select your browser's option to open the link in a new tab or window, which will lead you to https://hg.wald.intevation.org/ppgen/ppgen
3. you can clone from this URL: hg clone https://hg.wald.intevation.org/ppgen/ppgen

(considering the other priorities and that this is a main task of wald, I'm raising the priority to 4)
