TortoiseHg review board interface now uses a fork of the original extension

29 Dec

I originally wrote the TortoriseHg review board user interface to use a fork of Mdelagra’s fork of the original mercurial extension.

I have since made some changes to the UI I wrote earlier this year (goo.gl/AHKJE) to make use of a fork of the original extension instead.

I did this because the original extension that is listed on the Mercural website (goo.gl/nWMdS) has recently been update to support the Review Board API 2.0 that was shipped with Review Board 1.5. This updated API has some nicer features that I have implemented, namely, the more granular control over filtering review requests.

So I have forked the original and, among a couple of bug fixes, added some features to make it play nicer with the TortoiseHg review board dialog. This fork is now required to be used with TortoiseHg and can be downloaded here – goo.gl/cTdci

I have made contact with the developers of the original extension and hope to get my changes merged into it some time in the new year.

Hopefully before the release of TortoiseHg 2.0, however in the mean time my fork will have to suffice.

    You can try out the latest version of my fork if you like. I’ve incorporated the API 2.0 support from the original project.

      Gday Morgan,

      I will have a look at your fork again and see if it will work with the TortoiseHg dialog.

      I had to make a few tweaks and bug fixes to the original extension to get it to play nicely with the dialog so I may need to contribute a few patches to your version.

      Cheers,
      Mikey
