The Mozilla RelEng team was having one of our patented digressional discussions in IRC yesterday when we got around to the subject of hg irritations. My personal annoyance was that I frequently need to check-in patches for other people who don’t have commit access, but I don’t always remember to check before pushing to make sure I didn’t miss adding any new files created by the patch.
Because Ted is more about solving problems than bitching about them, he suggested I write a hook to prevent myself from missing files. Here it is:
precommit = hg status | (! grep '^?')
Add that to your .hgrc file (and setup some good global hgignore rules) and you’re golden.
