tests: add test of rebase with conflict in merge commit

Authored by martinvonz on Jan 11 2020, 1:47 AM.



It doesn't seem like we had any tests of this. I think it's pretty
weird that the two parents we're merging are not the working copy
parents during the conflict resolution.

I think it will be weird to have current parents as 7 and 8. Rebase copies commit, so if there is a merge commit, it copies it instead of recreating one. Also if we have 7 and 8 as parents, we might not have correct conflicts.

I made more arguments for changing it in the next patch (D7827). See if those can convince you :)

I'm not sure what you mean about not having correct conflicts. Related to that, I think it's actually weird (with how it's currently done) how you would not see any changes made between the merge base and the rebase base. So if there had been commits between A and C here and we were rebasing from C, we would not see those changes in the working copy. That's of course correct, but the dirstate's two parents suggest, IMO, that we're merging the two commits, so we should see those changes.

I can see the value in having the thing you're grafting in as a working copy parent because it makes it appear in the hg log output as a reminder. However, I don't think that's what the purpose of the dirstate parent should be. We could perhaps add another mechanism for showing the commit that's being rebased, and maybe also the base (which is generally not the merge base).

I've updated the comment to not be opinionated. I hope we can now queue this patch (and a few more in this series) regardless of what we think of D7827.
