I already asked the following question on the users mailing list, but I did not receive an answer, which helps me further. Has someone here an idea, how I can get a list of files in a precommit (or similar) hook, which will be committed (respecting the passed command line arguments)?

See the thread on the other mailing list for some already mentioned ideas:

> My first attempt was to use a precommit hook, which can abort a commit, but I did not find a possibility to get a list of all the files, which will be committed. There is repo[None].files(), which lists all the files that have changed, but it does not respect command line arguments. When someone appends file arguments to the hg call (e.g. hg commit -m "lorem" only_this_file.txt) I found no possibility to respect this "filter". The files method always returns all files.
