Yesterday, I had to realize that hg was using my graphical merge tool of
choice (meld <http://meld.sourceforge.net/>) differently than I expected
(and different from what |git mergetool| does with it)^[1 <#fn1>] . Thus
most merges where I manually resolved conflicts with meld are probably
faulty. If I'm lucky, only doc/contributions.txt is affected, but I'm
not sure.

To avoid others cloning the faulty merges and applying new commits ontop
of them, I've moved my repository to boroondas/snowstorm-development
DON'T USE THIS REPO! Faulty merges!
If you already have pulled or cloned from
bitbucket.org/boroondas/snowstorm-development before that, please
refrain to base any work on my merges or be prepared to having to rebase
it. I'll follow up with a new clone at the original location of my
repository soon and will hopefully get the merges right this time.
(KDiff3, with the proper configuration
<http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/KDiff3>, seems to augment hg better
than meld, but I'm still new to it so have to be careful.) While I'm at
it, I might also re-do some of the non-merge commits, so for now it
might be saver to base nothing on /any/ commits by me.

Sorry for the inconveniences and please bear with me as I learn all this

As the Product Backlog inclusion is supposed to happen even before any
work on the issue is started, I hope it can move forward regardless.


^[1 <#fn1back>] |HGMERGE=meld hg resolve --all| displays three text
fields side-by-side, from left to right: local, base, other. This seemed
very similar to |git mergetool| with meld, which has from left to right:
local, pre-merged, other.|| Thus I assumed that, as with |git mergetool|
with meld, the edited middle field would serve as the merge result, when
with hg, it actually <http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/Meld> was the
edited local version in the left-most field. When one edits all 3 fields
in meld until they're equal and then saves them, this doesn't matter,
but I didn't do that in all cases.
