Update Mercurial on Windows when running ./mach bootstrap
59 bytes, text/x-review-board-request
IIUC, we're already doing this on Linux. Since we install Mercurial via pip on Windows, there's no reason we can't do the same there. I pretty routinely hear feedback from users that indicates they were unaware they could update their copy of Mercurial on Windows, so this would be a nice way to help facilitate it.
I agree we should do this. However, Windows support in the bootstrapper currently requires msys2/pacman. So this will require a bit of plumbing to teach the bootstrapper to work with MozillaBuild. That work is years overdue, however.

I'm wrong. I was looking at the wrong file :)
I'm just going to do this.
