Mercurial repository layout for multiple branches

interoperation between mercurial and subversion

A similar question has been asked recently, but is not the same.

After a period of time, […]

When using mercurial, I’d like to be able to diff the working copy of a file with the tip file in my default remote repository. Is there an easy way to do this? I know I can do an “hg incoming -p” to see the patch sets of changes coming in, but it’d be nice […]
