Currently qimport will prompt the user if multiple patches exist for a bug. Propose to add a configuration option 'auto_choose_all' that if set to True results in all patches being retrieved without the user being prompted. Related is the addition of exposing 'bugdesc' as a metadata element of the formatting string. An example .hgrc entry : [qimportbz] msg_format = Bug %(bugnum)s - %(title)s (%(flags)s) . . attachment %(id)s - %(desc)s . %(bugdesc)s Also included is a fix for selecting a particular attachment via the URL syntax: bz://xxxxx/axxaa , where xxxxx is the bug # and aaaaa is the attachment #
Regarding the auto_choose_all option, don't you get burned by the ill-defined ordering of the patches, since that can change as patches are revised and uploaded to bugzilla? When I use the interactive retrieval, I choose the order. +1 to being able to select particular attachments via URL syntax; I assume that that technique is able to download even the attachments that have been obsoleted, right? (A capability that has pro's and con's, I imagine; but its a cool property nonetheless.)

Probably, although I haven't tried as this feature already existed it was just broken.

Hmm, I thought the argument to qpush meant to apply *up to* that patch, not to apply it out of order. Oh, I see, there's the "--move" argument to qpush.
Comment on attachment 486958 [details] [diff] [review] auto choose, with 'bugdesc' and bz://xxxx/aaaa fix Looks good - much simpler than I expected! Only nit is that I'd prefer you use str(n) instead of `n`.
Attachment #486958 - Flags: review?(tellrob) → review+
updated and pushed patch; changed `n` usage to str(n) as suggested by Rob. Thanks again Rob for creating such a handy tool.
