Description Vojtech Sigler 2012-03-21 15:02:54 UTC
I'm working with both Subversion and Mercurial version control systems.
Both have a sort of current status view. 

For Subversion I can invoke Subversion->Show changes.

For Mercurial I can invoke Mercurial->Status.

Both serve the same purpose - to see the current status of the working copy. However in the view for subversion, I can switch between Incoming/Outgoing/Both changes, whereas for Mercurial I can see only outgoing changes.

If I want to see incoming changes I have to go to Team->Mercurial->Show->Show Incoming.

My proposal is to include the incoming changes into the repository status view in a manner similar to Subversion. It would be good to have a quick overall idea about incoming/outgoing changes for Mercurial.

Great; I don't currently use Mercurial, but this would be a usability improvement.
While in it, would not it be good if a common repository status view and set data providers?

Showing the outgoing changes would also be handy. This way you are notified of pending outgoing changes.
