I spent some time today figuring out how to bundle qct together with
mercurial when building the win32 hg installer. I think I've got the
kinks worked out of the process and now have a patch which can be
applied to any hg repository just before building the installer.
There's quite a bit of demand for a "Batteries Included" mercurial
installer for Windows, and there's a large benefit to bundling python
apps together in a single py2exe app rather than just providing links
to separate installers (RT performance, DL time, and disk space).
I went through this exercise to kind of kick-start this process again
and get feedback from people on what they feel the best
possible "Batteries Included" win32 installer would include for:
* History viewer gui
hgk and tcl, or some other option?
* 3-way diff
* Merge helper
