Overview

This extension stops you from commiting a CaseFolding collision. In older versions of Mercurial, it was possible to introduce case-folding collisions by means of Merge and RebaseExtension while using a repository solely on case-folding file-systems like NTFS. In addition, such a collision can not be detected by the user until he tries to update back to this commit.

Furthermore, on projects using repos shared by users of Windows and POSIX-systems, it is easy for a POSIX user to cause the Windows folks a hard time. With this extension, you'll be stopped before commiting the crime...

Configuration 1.2 or higher

Configure your .hgrc to enable the extension by adding following lines:

[extensions]
casestop = path/to/casestop.py

This will already install the precommit hook.

Configuration 1.1.2

Configure your .hgrc to enable the precommit hook:

[hooks]
precommit.casestop = python:hgext.casestop.hook
