           Summary: Importing a patch as its own descendant leads to weird
                    obsolete cycle
          Severity: bug
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: Mac OS
          Reporter: durin42 at gmail.com
          Hardware: PC
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: unspecified
         Component: evolution
           Product: Mercurial

I accidentally managed to import hgsubversion revision 260212f056b7 twice, once
as its own revision and once as a child of 11c8de73b48a. This led to a cycle
that was briefly confusing.

We should probably wire up 'import --obsolete' to notice when a patch has been
imported and point the user to that revision instead, as this would help avoid
confusion.
