@Chocobo1 Thank you, great!

I think that in 95% of the cases, users of this AUR package want the stable branch instead of the default branch.

Maybe so, but then the users are looking at the wrong package. Some users do actually want to work on the default branch, trying the most bleeding edge features and that is exactly what the "-hg" word in package name is all about.

I suppose creating another package targeting stable branch would benefit other users and that would also avoid editing PKGBUILD to adjust target branch. And so I submitted: mercurial-stable-hg.

The problem was fixed in the meantime: https://www.mercurial-scm.org/repo/hg-committed/rev/640bae94f2f3

@Chocobo1 In any case, I think that in 95% of the cases, users of this AUR package want the stable branch instead of the default branch. The problem wouldn’t have happened with the stable branch. If people know that they want the default branch, it would be easy for them to adjust the PKGBUILD.

Especially for users of TortoiseHg that would be nice, because they need Mercurial to run on Python 3 and the mercurial-hg package provides that, but most likely they want a more stable version of it.

I got an error: install: cannot stat 'doc/hg.1': No such file or directory Could you confirm?

Same here, seems it is caused by https://www.mercurial-scm.org/repo/hg/rev/2e017696181f. I also find out that it will build successfully if all mercurial/help/ instances are changed to mercurial/helptext/ in "hg/doc/Makefile". This is clearly an upstream error/issue so I would prefer to let them resolve it instead of having a temporary patch here. It is really kind of dumb that they don't test doc generation in their CI pipeline :(
