Since this appears to be in fashion, I thought I'd share a few mercurial tips of my own.
I created a
hg qstatus command by adding the following to my hgrc:
[extensions] parentrevspec = [alias] qstatus = status --rev qtip^:qtip
This shows the files modified by your topmost mq patch.
I often switch to a patch and then run
$ vim `hg qst -n`
to open all the files touched by that patch.
Indexing into your patch queue
hg qseries shows you which patches in your series are applied
and gives a zero-based index for each patch in your queue. For instance,
$ hg qseries -v 0 A foo 1 U bar 2 U baz
This is particularly useful because mq operations can take these indices as operands, as in
$ hg qgoto 2 applying bar applying baz now at: baz
You can make
-v the default for
qapplied by adding this to
[defaults] qseries = -v qapplied = -v
I like combining this with hg-prompt; there's now a
command in hg-prompt which corresponds to the index of the topmost applied
patch in your queue. (It's in the main repository, but the docs aren't yet
