through the merge to the beginning of time. Because there were no
changes on the "local" branch, no "merge" actually happens, so nothing
is recorded between "h" and "i". In other words, this file-level
history graph is the same as:


..which is what you get when you ask for a file's history.

But we still haven't solved your problem, which can be phrased as
"when did file X get changed -relative- to branch Y"? And
unfortunately, we don't currently store enough data in each changeset
to make answering this question fast. We store a list of changed files
but that's only "changed" in the sense above. So we'll have to hack
something up:

for rev in `hg log -f --template "{rev}\n"`; do
  echo -n "$rev:"
  hg manifest --debug | grep myfile

This generates a list of all revisions that are ancestors of the
working directory and then uses manifest to report which version of
the file is present:

Change the -f to -fm and it'll do so only for merges.

We could probably add an option like the --removed log option to show
revisions where the file was affected by a merge.

Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
