Mercurial wants to overwrite my job_conf.xml

cganote@iu.edu
Hi Galaxy devs,

I had an issue recently where I must have messed up my .hgignore file or done something terrible to my repository.
I created a bitbucket and pushed my instance to it. I then pulled that onto my laptop and hooked it all up with Eclipse. After I was happy with my code, I pushed to bb and tried to pull to my instance, but the job_conf.xml file was overwritten. I had all of my tools set up there for the instance; on my laptop I had removed all that because it didn't apply. Would it have messed up if I deleted the file on my laptop and replaced it with a copy of job_conf.xml.simple? I took the .simple out of course and altered it to just what I needed.

This is cross-posted with Stack Overflow:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/22055348/mercurial-update-seems-to-overwrite-local-file
Here is my repo:
https://bitbucket.org/cganote/iu-ncgas-galaxy

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

-Carrie

Hi Carrie,

.hgignore should not affect files that you have explicitly tracked (e.g. with `hg add job_conf.xml`) - if the file is tracked, Mercurial will attempt to update and patch the working copy if there are upstream changes. Also, it looks like your current tip includes neither .hgignore or job_conf.xml:


Your tip is also on the stable branch - do you mean to be working in two branches?

Hi Nate,

Thanks for the reply! To answer/clarify your points:
>.hgignore should not affect files that you have explicitly tracked (e.g. with `hg add job_conf.xml`)
I have a suspicion that when I tried to add a directory using Eclipse, I might have added the whole repository, taking it all out of .hgignore's control.

>if the file is tracked, Mercurial will attempt to update and patch the working copy if there are upstream changes.
It does seem like it isn't merging or patching, just choosing one over the other...

>it looks like your current tip includes neither .hgignore or job_conf.xml
I did indeed try to remove those files from being tracked in the tip. This caused those files to be removed from my working copy when I updated.

>Your tip is also on the stable branch - do you mean to be working in two branches?
I didn't know what I was doing (still dont!) when I set up the repository - it seemed like if I was pulling from stable automatically, I should do all of my work in stable. I was further confused when Eclipse pushed to default by default and then I ended up mangling both.

What I'm looking for now is a way to merge the last good changeset from my remote server (bf3924e Added pull..) with my last good local repo (6dc34fa Refined cli runner..). Should I just pull 6dc and replace the files I need from bf3 manually?

Thanks so much for the advice,

Carrie Ganote

Hi Carrie,

The easiest solution at this point may be to generate diffs (e.g. with
`hg diff`) of the changes you want, and then apply those in clean
commits.
