            Bug ID: 5729
           Summary: Subrep paths can overwrite existing paths
           Product: Mercurial
           Version: 4.4
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: bug
          Priority: wish
         Component: Mercurial
          Assignee: bugzilla at mercurial-scm.org
          Reporter: sean at farley.io
                CC: mercurial-devel at mercurial-scm.org

It can be misleading that Mercurial will allow a subrepo path to be the same as
a path already checked in (and vice versa). This is bad because it hides the
fact that a subdirectory on disk has content that is *not* the same as the
subrepo itself.
