What version are you running?
What's the URL of the page containing the problem?
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Create a mercurial repository with three committed files, fileA, fileB,
and fileC. fileA and fileB must have some content, fileC must be empty.
2. Remove fileA. Edit contents of fileB.
3. rbt post
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I expected the posted review to only contain fileA and fileB. The posted
review contains fileC as well.
What operating system are you using? What browser?
Windows 7, Mercurial 3.4.1
Please provide any additional information below.
The problem is RBT tries to locate newly added empty files by running two
base_files = hg locate -r base
tip_empty_files = hg locate -r tip set:size(0)
newly_added_empty_files = tip_empty_files - base_files
In Windows hg locate -r base returns the following:
where as hg locate -r tip set:size(0) returns:
Note that the first command uses a forward slash as path separator, the
second uses backslash as path separator. When calculating the set
difference fileC.txt doesn't match and rbt posts it as a newly added file.
