The downside of use your documentation as a todo list...
is that it may make it into print (that's "Mercurial: The Definitive Guide").
That was pulled directly from the online version. It's a good book overall, except for sections like this where you need to read the comments.

I don't see the WTF - the instructions are pretty clear. Whenever you want to "cherry-pick changes with the transplant extension", just find the nearest Brendan and have a long chat with him about it.
Okay, I admit I don't know how that is supposed to help, but that's probably just because I don't know anyone named Brendan, so I haven't been enlightened yet.
TRWTF is "programmer, photographer, ... dancer??"
TRWTF is "programmer, photographer, ... dancer??"So what's TRWTF here (and why did you leave off Bassist?)? Care to explain why these interests are mutually exclusive?
And I say that having programmed in a multitude of languages running on everything from embedded systems to midsize computers. I've shot B&W and colour film on 35mm and MF, as well as shooting digital, and have studied photography in some not-for-credit college level courses. And I've danced various ballroom dances, as well as Merengue, Salsa, Cha-Cha but have been focussing on Argentine Tango more recently. Aside from the social aspects, dances like Tango are hard to master, as you have to control many different aspects
- Be aware of which feet both you and your partner have their weight on at all times
- Be able to guide your partner in the direction you want to perform a movement using a combination of body movements in 4 axis (up/down, rotation, forwards/backwards, side/side
- Craft the movements into a dance that fits the rhythm/style of the music
- Make your partner look good while following your plan
- Navigate around the dance floor, avoiding everybody else doing their thing
- And because Tango does not rely on set choreography, but on following weight changes etc, you make it all up on the spot - kind of like freeform jazz
- All of which requires a decent amount of flexibility and physical fitness
