Mercurial 1.9 sprint, day one

Sat, 30 Apr 2011 02:31 by mpm in Uncategorized (link)

I’m in Copenhagen this weekend for the Mercurial 1.9 sprint. We’ve got a team of 19 contributors meeting for three days at the beautiful offices of Edlund A/S.

Yesterday, we ran through a rather lengthy agenda, covering:

  • Google Summer of Code
  • Improving the templating engine
  • Filesets (a feature to complement revsets)
  • PyPy support and the difficulties of Python 3
  • Integrating various extension features into the core
  • Bundling some external extensions
  • Speeding up the test suite and testing on Windows
  • In-memory patching and interactive commit
  • Updating Mercurial: The Definitive Guide
  • Replacing our BTS
  • An extended discussion of frameworks for cleanly changing history (what we’ve been calling Liquid Hg)


  1. I REALLY hope rebaseif ( extension functionnality could be bundled with Mercurial 1.9 and rebase + rebaseif activated by default.

    Rebaseif extension make using Mercurial so easy, really, it is a must have for all users !!!

  2. Seb: please contact the author of RebaseIf and ask him to push it to us on the Mercurial mailinglist. Instead of making a new extension, it should be very easy to integrate the logic into the existing rebase extension.
