Hi, mercurial developers.
I'm currently using git/stgit at work, but I'm a big fan of Mercurial and MQ.
Some MQ features can be done better. One of such features is series output.
`stg series` output is something like:
`hg qseries` only outputs patch names:
stg output is much better.
`hg qseries` has -v flag that adds "A", "U", and "G" prefixes and patch number:
0 A examples-iml
1 A error-function-reason
2 A add-appendable
3 U jdr
4 U two-tests-override
I think that:
* prefixed output should be on by default (and --noprefix option to
turn prefixes off)
* patch number seems noisy and useless to me
* "+" and "-" signs are read better that "A" and "U"
* ">" mark for current patch is convenient
So. I'd like to patch hg qseries to match stg series output. What do you think?
