I'm running the central mercurial repository, and I understand that the normal "push" command will stop if the remote user is trying to force multiple "head"s to my central repository. The intention is that the remote user should first pull and merge before trying to push again.
hg push --force will override this. I would like to block this behavior.
I am currently using the
hgwebdir.cgi plus some apache-auth stuff to limit users ability to pull and push.
EDIT: a pretxnchangegroup hook solved the problem. Hook worked:
#!/bin/bash # force-one-head # add the following to <repository>/.hg/hgrc : # [hooks] # pretxnchangegroup.forceonehead = /path/to/force-one-head if [[ `hg heads -q | wc -l` -gt 1 ]]; then echo "There are multiple heads." echo "Please 'hg pull' and get your repository up to date first." echo "Also, don't 'hg push --force' because that won't work either." exit 1 fi
