hg copy SOURCE TARGET
echo "this file is derived from SOURCE" >> TARGET
hg commit -m "Added TARGET, which is SOURCE with small modifications."
hg pull from-a-repo-which-has-modifications-to-SOURCE
This will apply the modifications from upstream to SOURCE and to
hg log --verbose --copies (or -vC)
will show that TARGET is a copy of SOURCE.
hg log --follow TARGET
will show the history of SOURCE, too.
All this assumes a recent (post 0.9.1) Mercurial.
