hg bundle [-f] [-t TYPE] [-a] [-r REV]... [--base REV]... FILE [DEST]

create a changegroup file

Generate a changegroup file collecting changesets to be added to a repository.

To create a bundle containing all changesets, use -a/--all (or --base null). Otherwise, hg assumes the destination will have all the nodes you specify with --base parameters. Otherwise, hg will assume the repository has all the nodes in destination, or default-push/default if no destination is specified.

You can change bundle format with the -t/--type option. You can specify a compression, a bundle version or both using a dash (comp-version). The available compression methods are: none, bzip2, and gzip (by default, bundles are compressed using bzip2). The available formats are: v1, v2 (default to most suitable).

The bundle file can then be transferred using conventional means and applied to another repository with the unbundle or pull command. This is useful when direct push and pull are not available or when exporting an entire repository is undesirable.

Applying bundles preserves all changeset contents including permissions, copy/rename information, and revision history.

Returns 0 on success, 1 if no changes found.

options ([+] can be repeated):

-f --force run even when the destination is unrelated
-r --rev REV [+] a changeset intended to be added to the destination
-b --branch BRANCH [+] a specific branch you would like to bundle
--base REV [+] a base changeset assumed to be available at the destination
-a --all bundle all changesets in the repository
-t --type TYPE bundle compression type to use (default: bzip2)
-e --ssh CMD specify ssh command to use
--remotecmd CMD specify hg command to run on the remote side
--insecure do not verify server certificate (ignoring web.cacerts config)

global options ([+] can be repeated):

-R --repository REPO repository root directory or name of overlay bundle file
--cwd DIR change working directory
-y --noninteractive do not prompt, automatically pick the first choice for all prompts
-q --quiet suppress output
-v --verbose enable additional output
--config CONFIG [+] set/override config option (use 'section.name=value')
--debug enable debugging output
--debugger start debugger
--encoding ENCODE set the charset encoding (default: UTF-8)
