The test case fails on both py2 and py3 for me. This CI pipeline agrees that it's failing: https://foss.heptapod.net/octobus/mercurial-devel/-/pipelines/11695. Can you send a fix?

looks good, but please follow up with a patch for hg help hgrc and other location where standard config path might be setup.
We did this cleanup together, this is better than the original code. Thanks
