It would be extremely nice if the Auto Exclude List in the Commit settings of TortoiseHg would support globs - like , .cs, *.xml or whatever the things are that you want to exclude.
My normal usage pattern is that I always (or almost always) exclude all files when I want to commit. Then, I specifically checkmark those files that relate to each other, write a comment for those, and perform the commit. When working like this, it's a bit annoying to have to manually uncheck them all first, every single time.
So, that's why this issue would be really nice to have implemented at some point.
