We're using SourceTree with Mercurial to great satisfaction for our development, but there's one thing annoying me, which I wonder if it's configurable.
If a developer has worked on a branch, completed the feature / change, merged into default (which is our release branch) and closed their working branch, there's this final dot in the flow showing that closing commit.
I'd like the line merging the branch flow with the default branch line to be the final one, instead of having that branch close dot staying just above the line merging the two branches. Is this possible?
I hope I made sense there...
Thanks for great work, Atlassian.
Thanks for the input. Closing branches can be confusing when it comes to looking at the graph. The graph reflects what has actually happened in terms of commits/merges/branches and so we maintain what's true to what Mercurial reports in the log. If you check out the Mercurial docs on closing a branch it states "This creates a closing changeset which typically contains no modifications to tracked files." So true to Mercurial, there is a merge commit and a close commit which can't be done in one go. There's two options in your case:
We wouldn't really mess with the log view to reflect something which isn't true, unfortunately Mercurial doesn't let you do a merge commit whilst closing the branch in one go.
Hope that helps
