Can't compare with closed branches ?

Issue #9001 invalid

created an issue

We are using mercurial and I would like to compare two branches in repository. compare default to one of closed branches. Why isnt this possible ?

As far as I know closing a branch in mercurial is just marking it; so it won't show up in branches and heads.

    @Zaffy,

    We generally don't expose closed branches in the UI for the same reason that Mercurial doesn't expose them in branch or head lists: to reduce clutter. However, you can compare arbitrary changesets using the Compare feature. The URL pattern for this is:

    https://bitbucket.org/:owner/:repo/branches/compare/src_hash..dest_hash
    

    Hope this helps,
    Jon
