Subject [jira] [Created] (SCM-799) Implement export command
Date Fri, 19 Jun 2015 15:45:00 GMT
Peter Hansson created SCM-799:

             Summary: Implement export command
                 Key: SCM-799
             Project: Maven SCM
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: maven-scm-provider-mercurial (hg)
            Reporter: Peter Hansson

Currently the hg provider does not implement the {{export}} command.

Recap:  The {{export}} command terminology originates from the SVN world. It means to get
the sources without the SCM stuff, just sources, nothing else.

The equivalent in Mercurial world is {{hg archive}}. It was first implemented in 2006 (in
version 0.9).

I don't see a reason why the hg provider would _not_ support the {{export}} command. Sometimes
the source is really all you want. Doing an actual {{checkout}} (aka {{hg clone}}) can take
a lot more time than {{export}}.
