MergeUtil Extension

This extension is not distributed with Mercurial.

Author: Colin Caughie <>



This extension provides utilities that can be useful when merging two branches in a Mercurial repository. In particular, when a merge is in progress (i.e. the current working directory has two parents) it defines shortcuts to the three most important historical revisions:

This lets you do things like::

$ hg diff -r other
$ hg diff -r base -r local

It also provides the mergeinfo command, which displays useful information about the ongoing merge.
