I just remembered that I think there’s another minor bug with the creation of a repo from HgLab with a .hgignore file.
It might be that this is only related to empty/new repos or first repo in a Project or….
But we have seen where the new repo created with a .hgignore file shows up both with UTC and with the wrong user name.
it shows users name of the person who created the Project (I think… Been awhile since I’ve looked at this.)
If it were critical, we’d have been a squeaky wheel.
The work around is to create an empty repo with a /.hgignore file and then copy one in by hand.
I think after the initial creation, clone, etc… and push back it functions as normal.
But it is nice to be able to able to add the .hgignore file at creation.
In fact, I do that and then just put a note that the creation time is off by UTC.
pssttt, squeak squeak ;-)
Just a reminder to see if this can get fixed before 1.9.8 or whatever next release ordinal will be.
FYI - problem #344 has best details of the issue.
The UTC issue with .hgignore is not a big deal because it goes away after the first commit.
But the repo creator name being set to the Project creator's name is a bit more of an issue because that name never changes. However, when you have one name creating the repo and then another name adding N commits and the only commits are from the other name, then it's pretty obvious what's going on (if you're aware of this issue.) But when you have multiple folks working on a repo, it's more problematic. Well, that assumes there's a problem with having the wrong name on a repo creation. Certainly it's not optimal.
