"hg status" should skip over: * Emacs ~ files * directories pulled from CVS The way to do this is to add the right regexps to .hgignore.
(The previous patch deleted regexps for CVS directories. Mistake.)

Comment on attachment 272044 [details] [diff] [review] .hgignore patch OK, after a cup of coffee I think the first patch is the correct one. CVS directories shouldn't show up in your Mercurial repository, with the exception of the cvs-trunk-mirror repository. So I'll check the first patch into mozilla-central (and not cvs-trunk-mirror).

CVS directories *do* show up when we're doing import from CVS, and so .hgignore must continue to ignore them. Please don't change this, as it's important ;-)
Pushed changeset 899ca1f39f07 to hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central .

bs: Just talked with luser about this on IRC... I think we should only be doing import from CVS in cvs-trunk-mirror. If a CVS directory showed up in your mozilla-central or actionmonkey repository, it would mean something weird has happened somewhere, and you might as well know about it. So this change would be bad in cvs-trunk-mirror, but it makes sense in mozilla-central (where it's committed right now). Or so the theory goes. Let me know.
