Plan for 'hg histedit' with no revision arguments
This is a DRAFT for discussion, and does not represent any firm decisions on future behavior.
augie% hg histedit abort: histedit requires exactly one ancestor revision augie% hg histedit 'some revset with multiple roots' abort: histedit requires exactly one ancestor revision
augie% hg histedit 'some revset with multiple roots' abort: histedit requires exactly one ancestor revision augie% hg histedit abort: histedit requires history to edit (hint: try 'hg histedit "draft() and only(.)"' or 'hg histedit "draft() and outgoing()"')
Plus, add a config option that's the default, eg:
[histedit] defaultedit = # set this to make histedit without arguments work
so if I have
[histedit] defaultedit = draft() and only(.)
augie% hg histedit
and my editor fills with this:
# revisions automatically picked using "draft() and only(.)" # to change this default, edit your hgrc pick a2470d767056 27572 test-extension: use a realistic Mercurial version pick ed2fbd8baa9c 27574 dispatch: only check compatibility against major and ... # Edit history between a2470d767056 and ed2fbd8baa9c # # Commits are listed from least to most recent # # Commands: # p, pick = use commit # e, edit = use commit, but stop for amending # f, fold = use commit, but combine it with the one above # r, roll = like fold, but discard this commit's description # d, drop = remove commit from history # m, mess = edit message without changing commit content #
- Probably only want to go back to a merge?
- Should we just have a global default?
durham likes (only(.) & draft()) - ::merge()
- augie thinks durham is probably right about that default, but wants to see how it feels for a while.
