           Summary: debugrebuilddirstate silently rejects the 2nd parent
          Severity: feature
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: Windows
          Reporter: simohe at besonet.ch
          Hardware: PC
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: 2.6
         Component: Mercurial
           Product: Mercurial

The documentation of debugrebuilddirstate is correct.
It tells that the dirstate of one parent is rebuild. And that the default is
the 1st parent.
But this behaviour looks too dangerous for me. debugrebuilddirstate could abort
when there are two parents (and tell to use debugsetparents first when really
wanting to do this). Or the documentation should mention more explicitly that
only ONE parent is considered.
