5. Possible Topics

Important things we want to discuss: (add your own)

5.1. Tags

Multiple large users have their own overwrite of Mercurial tag system. It is worth reviewing what and why they do it and maybe make plan to improve the situation accordingly.

5.2. Releases

Right now durin42 is doing all the releases, and has some help doing release notes. It'd be nice to have others start rolling releases. Is anyone interested? Can we automate this more?

5.3. Obsshelve

What needs to be done to get this to replace current shelve?

5.4. Replication-friendly repository format

durin42 is interested in (and has a handwave of a design for) a storage layer that would be replication-friendly. Basically, "how could we restructure repo storage so that it would be safe to put in {Dropbox,CIFS,etc}"?

5.5. More command "namespace"

Right now we have the normal namespace and the "debug" namespace. It would be useful to have a couple more explicite namespace with their own garantee. For example one dedicated to maintenance command (debugupdatecache, debugrebuildstate, debugupgraderepo, etc…) and one for other tooling (eg: debugcompletion)

5.6. Google's --changeset-as-wdir feature

Multiple contributeur from google are trying to have various existing commands being able to consider a revision in place of the working copy. This is an interresting and powerful idea that is worth discussing in greater length.
