commit listening requires at least mercurial 3.4

Issue #971 resolved

The commits page returns status code 500, if the configured mercurial is older than 3.4.

The problem seems to be located in the The ifeq close part:

close={ifeq(get(extras, 'close'),1,1,0)}

seams not work before mercurial 3.4. The change was introduced with PR #34.

The commit listing should work for mercurial >= 2.0.

    The following works all the way down to Hg 2.4 (same as the pre-PR#39 solution - join() was added in 2.4):


    This causes characters in the value of the extras field to be urlencoded as necessary, so slightly different decoding is needed ("close=1" encodes as "close%3D1", and the comma used as field separator becomes "%2C").

    Alternatively, this works even in 1.9:


    ...but it has the unfortunate side effect of generating a false positive if the extras field contains e.g. "disclose=1234", since {extras|stringify} is equivalent to {join(extras, '')}.

    EDIT: not just "disclose=1234", but also "branch=classic" and "lose=1234" on the same commit

    OK, pull request #41 submitted with a fix that works down to at least 1.9 (the oldest I can test), but possibly as low as 0.9.2. The only side effect is that the extras field is returned with a trailing comma, so instead of "branch=temp,close=1", it returns "branch=temp,close=1,", which the current parsing code can handle without change.

    (As a side note, the commas aren't currently checked, so disclose=1234 is treated as close=1 regardless of whether or not the list is comma-separated.)
