HotSpot workflow

mq [1] is part of my workflow.

Also, rebase [2] + strip [3] + histedit [4] combo looks like a good 

I played with rebase and it enables interactive merge during rebase.
AFAIK mq doesn't support that.

Best regards,
Vladimir Ivanov

     My top commands:
     # Create new patch from uncommitted changes
     $ hg qnew <name>

     # Update applied patch on top and edit changeset message
     $ hg qrefresh -e

     $ hg qpush <name>
     $ hg qpush [--move] [<name>]

     # Fold 2 patches
     $ hg qfold ...

     # Commit the patch
     $ hg qfinish
