Mercurial (hg) cheat sheet
This page contains some helpful commands to use when interacting with the GNU/Octave mercurial repository.
When you do not have push permissions to the repository (you cannot add your changes using mercurial itself) and you have a modification to the current GNU Octave code, you have to generate a patch (or changeset) so developers with permissions can include them in the code. The overview of the process is as follows
- Change the code and test that your changes do work (write tests, that's the best!).
- Create the changeset (instructions below).
- Post your patch in the Patch tracker.
