            Bug ID: 6138
           Summary: `hg next --merge` (--evolve on by default) complains
                    about dirty working copy
           Product: Mercurial
           Version: 4.7.2
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Mac OS
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: feature
          Priority: wish
         Component: evolution
          Assignee: bugzilla at mercurial-scm.org
          Reporter: martinvonz at google.com

`hg next --merge` is supposed to move any dirty working copy changes along to
the next commit. Now that `hg next` has --evolve on by default, it will first
try to evolve an orphan. But the evolve step requires a clean working copy, so
you end up with "abort: uncommitted changes", which is really confusing when
you specified "--merge".
