The content of this blog is my personal opinion only. Although I am an employee - currently of Nvidia, in the past of other companies such as Iagination Technologies, MIPS, Intellectual Ventures, Intel, AMD, Motorola, and Gould - I reveal this only so that the reader may account for any possible bias I may have towards my employer's products. The statements I make here in no way represent my employer's position, nor am I authorized to speak on behalf of my employer. In fact, this posting may not even represent my personal opinion, since occasionally I play devil's advocate.

Repo state on branches


if you do hg clone -r default

(m)any branches that were closed will now be reopened.

Because the Mercurial close record for a branch is usually a stub in the revision tree.

This is suboptimal.

It is also the sort of thing I have been obsessing about, both for source code version control, but also for logs: some state may want to transcend branches.
