The --root option to hg diff does two things:
- Shows paths relative to the given root
- Filters paths by the given root, including copy sources
The root argument is passed through down to patch.diff(). I feel like
we can make patch.diff() more generic by not passing down the root
argument, but instead pass:
- A function for taking a repo-relative path and printing it. I want to reuse this for showing cwd-relative paths later. This is the actual motivation for this patch.
- A matcher that's already been filtered by the root argument
- A second matcher that filters the copy sources
This is one step towards that.
