Ah, thanks a zillion, I apologise for the trouble caused.
What a stupid mistake.
Today I learned something important: use named branches instead of
bookmarks, (in my case, even if I want to contribute to a git repo, it
does not matter since I cannot push to that repo).
So the command
hg export -r "branch(pretty)" -o mypatch.patch
Would have saved me the trouble.
It is a petty that (there is now way to generalise)
hg export -r "bookmark(pretty)" -o mypatch.patch
Which only exports the revset corresponding the actual bookmark but not
