Bare Update with Bookmarks
Status: Discussed at London Sprint
This is a work in progress
Moving an active bookmark with 'hg up' is non-deterministic and will be changed. The proposed solution is to treat a bookmark as a head and stay at the current commit when a bookmark is active.
To preserve the current behavior a new bookmark alias will be introduced: hg update -B .
That means there are three or so patches to achieve this:
introduce a -B . argument to update
add -B to current tests
- make a bare update no longer move the bookmark
