phabricator: add --amend option to phabsend

Authored by quark on Jul 18 2017, 12:20 AM.



Previously hg phabsend was imitating hg email and won't mutate
changesets. That works fine with reviewer-push workflow, reviewers run
phabread, import.

However, it does not work well with author-push workflow. Namely, the author
needs to run extra commands to get the right commit message, and remove the
local tag after push.

This patch solves those issues by adding the --amend option, so local
changesets will have the right commit message, and tags become unnecessary.

Test Plan

Given the following DAG:

o  17
o  16
| o  15
| @  14
o  13
o  12

Run hg phabsend '(13::)-17' --amend, check the new DAG looks like:

o  21
| o  20
| @  19
o  18
| o  17
| x  16
| x  13
o  12

And commit messages are updated to contain the Differential Revision lines.
Use phabread to make sure Phabricator has the amended node recorded.

Also check phabsend . followed by a phabsend . --amend, the commit
message will be updated and the tag will be removed.

I think it would be better to use differential.getcommitmessage for this. For example "reviewed by" field is a really nice thing to have in the commit message.

I was trying to make it behave closer to hg email. IIRC reviewers have some other plans to show "who accepts" information (that works for both Phabricator and email submits) on hgweb, so I didn't pay too much attention on "Reviewed By" here.
