Question: compare branch from different repos
Created originally on Bitbucket by gghh (Giovanni Gherdovich)
Hello dear tortoisehg team,
I write you here since I don't know any other way to reach you (mailing list? IRC channel?).
There is a feature that I would really love to see in TortoiseHG, which is: inspecting the relationship between multiple repositories. Basically, if repo1 and repo2 have some common history, I would like to open them at once in TortoiseHG, and see the two repos in a single DAG.
Basically, the result would be pretty much like if I pulled, say, repo1 from repo2, and then opened repo2 in TortoiseHG.
I proposed this to the mercurial folks as a Google Summer of Code "idea", and I have been told that this is interesting: http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/SummerOfCode/Ideas2013#integrate_in_TortoiseHg_tools_to_compare_branches_from_different_repos
I am willing to spend some time on this; I'd really love to hear from you what you think, and if you have some design sketch about how this can be implemented.
