Hi, I'm getting started with Phabricator. Think I could give this bug a shot?

Hi, Im trying, hg pull, then hg update to update my code. However i run into a problem updating, because i have made local edits. Any way to undo local edits?

I'm not familiar with mercurial, but the internet suggests maybe hg update --clean might do the trick. There's usually someone who knows hg on #introduction on IRC if you need some hands-on help.

Are you still working on this patch? Anything I can help with? Or should I unassign it for now?
