Description locked 2011-12-30 10:08:01 UTC
Some of my projects are not hosted online but only on a local workstation and on my notebook.
When I want to synchronize (Push/Pull) with my workstation I currently use TortoiseHG on the according repository and start the Tortoise-Webserver, so that I can push/pull with my notebook. Actually - after tagging is implemented in 7.1 - this is the only action, I need Tortoise for.

It would be great if NB would offer a "serve" option in the Mercurial-menu, so that I can get rid of TortoiseHG for this.

I already checked NB 7.1RC2 but serving doesn't seem to be integrated.
I think the same would be interesting for Git as well. Should I open a second RFE for Git?

Doesn't seem to be a typical usecase and a bit out of scope of the mercurial integration in the NetBeans IDE, but let's keep this open and reconsider in case more user request the feature.

thanks for understanding

Well it's even listed as first sharing possibility at the "Basic Workflows" at
(Okay, actually I also thought it wouldn't be too complicated either as the parameterlist of "hg serve" is rather short)
