As part of some Xen stuff I'm doing I have to interact with Mercurial, the SCM used. I'm pretty used to the git work flow, so I was wondering how to do the equivalent of patch squashing.

You need the mq extension.

The equivalent of -

$ git rebase -i HEAD~2

In Hg would look like -

$ hg qimport -g -r -2:-1
$ hg qpop
now at: 2146.diff
$ hg qfold 2147.diff
$ hg qrefresh -m 'new log message'
$ hg qfinish --all

The '-g' flag is a must if you have any binary diffs.

Of course this doesn't help you with reordering commits... :/
