Description John Rice 2008-03-11 16:14:19 UTC
Fecthing revisions is very slow on large repositories. This seems to be a hg issue, its just as slow from the command line.

Currently we have a limit of 100 revisions to fetch. We could reduce this to 10 and add in  a few options "Next 20..."
"Next 50..." "All..." to the combo to optionally allow a user to fetch more revisions. This would speed up the common
use case, when you are just dealing with the last few revisions.
Comment 1 John Rice 2008-03-11 22:36:53 UTC
Changed how Export Diff works - now comes up and fetches 7 revisions by default (above 7 get big performance hit), but
gives users options to:
"Fetch up to 20 revisions..."
"Fetch up to 50 revisions..."
"Fetch up to All revisions..."

On my Sony dual core x86 1.8GHz with 2 Gig RAM, to get the revisions its taking against
5-7 revisions: 15 sec
8-20 revisions: 40 sec
25-50 revisions: 100 sec

Will do the same for the other Dialogs that fetch revisions: Backup, Strip, Revert and Update

Added changes to limit revisions fetched in Update, Revert, Strip and Backout. Also came across issue when you have
multiple heads for these dialogs. As context was not being passed, the list of revs was following one branch only and
not listing all revs as it should. So changed all the dialogs including Export to pass in appropriate context so they do
the right thing.
