Comment #4 on issue 3067 by scherere...@gmail.com: Parent diffs with
mercurial are still broken
This bug is extremely aggravating for us. It appears to happen whenever the
parent diff does not contain the file that is being changed in the diff to
For instance, parent diff made changes to files A, B
Uploaded diff makes changes to files B, C
B will display correctly, C will throw an error.
We figured out how to work around it, by using a parent diff that goes from
0:desireddiff-1; for example:
we want to upload revision 5, then we would do:
hg export 5 > diff.patch
hg diff -r 0:4 > parent.patch (or null:4)
and upload those, and that always seems to work. Unfortunately, this means
we are unable to use postreview in most cases.
