17:30 gh_ hi
17:47 mizu_no_oto joined #darcs
18:34 lelf can we put back the patch recording for ‘rollback’ (--with-flag?)?
18:38 lelf ... or are there some reasons?
18:39 gh_ lelf, I recall the reason was code simplification and letting the user check themselves that the resulting working copy made sense, before recording
18:40 gh_ since you can rollback on a dirty working copy
18:42 Heffalump I think most users (including myself) felt that most of the use cases involved not getting a patch automatically
18:42 Heffalump and also if you do want the patch, it's less confusing to then record, than it is to get it and then unrecord if you don't want it
18:43 Heffalump I'll try and dig out the discussion about changing it
18:43 * Heffalump abases himself suitably for breaking the build for no good reason
18:47 Heffalump http://irclog.perlgeek.de/darcs/2012-04-27 seems to have some of it
18:47 Heffalump also http://bugs.darcs.net/patch812

19:08 lelf It seems I only use rollback to obtain the exact reverse patch. (Even if repo is currently dirty)
19:11 lelf this is the only discussion I found http://lists.osuosl.org/pipermail/darcs-devel/2012-June/013985.html
19:19 gh_ yes, that's the relevant discussion
19:20 gh_ I still think the code simplification was worth it
19:24 gh_ lelf, even if I agree you have a use case for it
19:28 gh_ lelf, in the meantime I discovered that mercurial's equivalent "hg backout" also did not commit (except when you rollback the tip commit), and the argument is also err on the safe side and let the user inspect and commit the resulting working copy

20:20 lelf well, IDK, but rollback --rec was super useful to me. And it's the only way to "unrecord" already published patch
20:21 Heffalump is running record explicitly afterwards really annoying?
20:54 lelf of course it is. if there's a mess of uncommited changes
21:05 Heffalump hmm, yeah
21:05 * Heffalump isn't particularly averse to putting back --record (but with --no-record as the default)
21:06 * Heffalump wonders what rollback --record did if the local change conflicted with the rollback
