  • Learn the basics of working with a repository, changesets, and revisions
  • Merge changes from separate repositories
  • Set up Mercurial to work with files on a daily basis, including which ones to track
  • Get examples and tools for setting up various workflow models
  • Manage a project that's making progress on multiple fronts at once
  • Find and fix mistakes by isolating problem sources
  • Use hooks to perform actions automatically in response to repository events

Book News Annotation:

In this tutorial, readers will walk step by step through tracking, merging, and managing both open source and commercial software projects with Mercurial, using Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris, and other systems. Every code sample is 'live,' that is, each one is actually the result of a shell script that executes the Mercurial commands. Instructions are given for merging changes from separate repositories, setting up Mercurial to work with files on a daily basis, setting up various workflow models, isolating problem sources, and customizing the output of Mercurial. O'Sullivan is writer and developer who works with distributed systems. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The first and only book on Mercurial, this guide takes readers step by step through ways to track, merge, and manage software projects with this system. Mercurial is a popular versioning system, used by Mozilla, Python, and several open source projects, that lets users pursue either centralized or distributed version control. This book explains how to work with a version repository, and teaches readers how to use Mercurial to collaborate with others, manage releases, find and fix mistakes, and more. They'll also learn advanced uses, such as customizing Mercurial's output.
