Hi, I'm looking for some advice from anyone who has been using mercurial with LabVIEW. Firstly I have just been trying some branching and merging. After a merge, having been configured for merge using https://bitbucket.or...iew-integration I see some .orig files getting left in the repository. Is this a failing on LabVIEWmerge.exe to clean it up or is it the way mercurial works? I am interested in the DVCS camps because of merging. I currently use SVN, primarily as a lone developer. I like not having to maintain a separate central repo and the improved merging, primarily from the point of having sandbox branches. I like that in Git, if I have an experimental branch that doesn't work out I can delete it. Is there a similar workflow with bookmarks that can be achieved or am I going to end up with a load of bookmarks littered around the place? I liked that Mercurial integrates better with Windows and is a simpler way to learn DVCS than Git, but I do also like the look of branching in Git and think the extra flexibility may be a killer feature. That said my general opinion when you get these 'holy wars' is that there is probably no real difference between them, else people wouldn't be arguing so much over minor details! Cheers, James
