mercurial strip – Remove experimental branch – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/12

I found a working solution here.It works by using hg strip from the mq extension:$ hg strip my_pruned_branchAs mentioned in the comments, this should only be used for unpublished changesets.

Source: mercurial – Remove experimental branch – Stack Overflow

You need mercurial strip for that which ships with Mercurial 2.8 and up but isn’t enabled by default.

Enabling is easy and can be done globally or on a per-repository base which I like better: just edit your .hg/hgrc file inside your repository and add these lines:

[extensions]
strip =

The source StripExtension – Mercurial forgets to mention you can enable this on a repository base.

I used it to delete an experimental branch that I hadn’t yet pushed to the outside world.
