Help: qguard

hg qguard [-l] [-n] [PATCH] [-- [+GUARD]... [-GUARD]...]

set or print guards for a patch

Guards control whether a patch can be pushed. A patch with no guards is always pushed. A patch with a positive guard ("+foo") is pushed only if the 'hg qselect' command has activated it. A patch with a negative guard ("-foo") is never pushed if the 'hg qselect' command has activated it.

With no arguments, print the currently active guards. With arguments, set guards for the named patch.


Specifying negative guards now requires '--'.

To set guards on another patch:

hg qguard other.patch -- +2.6.17 -stable

Returns 0 on success.


-l --list list all patches and guards
-n --none drop all guards
