This happens from time to time for reasons I don't understand. I'll make some changes, commit all the changed files and push, but when it's done, it will still say "uncommitted changes" at the top, but there are NO pending files that need to be committed. Why does this happen (only about 1% of the time) and how do I get rid of it (or should I just ignore it, since the next time I make changes, it will actually be relevant)
This can happen for a number of reasons as we've seen in the past. The main culprits are
SourceTree gets told to update the status of the working directory after a commit, so if it takes some time it's due to Git/Hg taking time to respond, and this usually happens for the reasons above. Take a look and see if either of those are causing a problem, if not feel free to ask more questions.
Thanks for the feedback--I'm not sure either of these two would be the culprit. I have a new MBP with 8GB ram and 150GB free disk space. Also, the repo I've been working on has been fine until now--I commit/push at regular intervals so there's never a ton of new files. I just did a commit to the dev branch and merged with QA and production, and I still have that empty "uncommitted changes" thing at the top. It's not really hindering me, I guess, but it IS annoying.
Ah ha, this is a temporary file created by hg to determine details of your file system. If the file doesn't get deleted then it's probably because something like a file scanner or something else was holding a lock on the file at the time hg was running so it fails to delete it. Could you try and run "hg debugfsinfo"? This *may* delete that file as it should re-create/delete the temp file. You should add this to your ignore list too, just everything below .hgcheck will do it. This issue should've been fixed in Hg 1.9, what version are you using? (Embedded or system, etc.)
It's Mercurial's responsibility to delete that file. If for some reason it didn't get deleted then it's either a bug in Mercurial, or that temp file is being locked at the point Mercurial is trying to delete it. It's no problem if it exists though, Mercurial does all kinds of things like this to regulate the proper feedback to the user. It should be fine now, the temp file (if it stays in your file system) will just be deleted/re-created when hg does its business.
I'm having the same problem and using both the embedded mercurial 1.9 and the latest one on my box didn't help. Moreover I've done everything listed previously in the comments above; hg status doesn't return anything in either the main or sub-repo. Is there something else that I'm missing? One thing that's interesting, this only happens when I set rebase to happen right after a pull.
