My question is about the (Windows) entries in this part of the FILES
(Unix) $HOME/.hgrc, (Windows) %HOME%\Mercurial.ini, (Windows)
%HOME%\.hgrc, (Windows) %USERPROFILE%\Mercurial.ini, (Windows)
Is it intended to convey that Mercurial will look for the files in the
I ask because in my naiveté I assumed I could have both a .hgrc for my
*nix systems and Mercurial.ini for my Windows systems (e.g. paths on
the same kinds of system are the same, but *nix and Windows have very
different paths). However, it seems that when I have both .hgrc and
Mercurial.ini, hg on Windows (1.3.1, which was installed with
TortoiseHg 0.8.1) reads my .hgrc first.
Did I misread by presuming that the order of the files was
significant, or is there a bug?
