mq patch message not shown in repoview

Johan Samyn avatarJohan Samyn created an issue

When I create a new MQ patch from the commit tab, with a message for it, then that message is only shown in the changelog when applied. Nor is it shown in the changeset info in the revdetails tab. Cause seems to be that in the patchfile there is a blanc line between the last headerlines and the message.

    I couldn't reproduce this on Windows either, except by including a leading blank line in the initial qnew message. I've pushed a62433a33328 to strip the patch message when doing a qnew. Can you still reproduce the problem?

  2. Johan Samyn

    That patch does not solve the problem.

    I also noticed that when importing a cset into MQ, things are ok. But then there is a # Node ... line in the header. That line is missing when creating a patch via qnew. It's not added when doing qrefresh neither. Perhaps that is the cause of the blank line?

  3. Steve Borho

    The lack of a node line is normal for QNew vs QImport. The node line holds the changeset hash of the revision that was imported.

    Once the blank line exists between the header and message, qref is unable to fix it. The refresh code preserves the blank line.

    So you're still able to create new patches with the blank line? I wasn't able to.

    But anyway, it's a simple problem. We only show the first line of the changeset summary, and in this case the first line is empty. I looked at how 'hg import' itself works and it strips the message read from the file, so I did that in our patch context as well.
