I still want qstatus

Asked by IWATA Hidetaka on 2009-12-02

In past, there were some discussions about needs of qstatus dialog, and they concluded qstatus were unnecessary because it can be replaced by qbrowse or bzr-explorer.
But I don't think so.

bzr status can show changes between any two revisions, not only working-tree, and TMK, qbrowse and bzr-explorer can't do it.
(Above all, I use 'bzr status -r submit:' very often.)

I hope qstatus to support this function.
e.g.
 * bzr qstatus -r 100..101 # show changes made by rev 100
 * bzr qstatus -r 100 # show changes between rev100 and working-tree
 * bzr qstatus -r submit: # show changes will be submitted

And more, I think it's very nice that qstatus can be called from context menu of qlog dialog by selecting two revisions.

Could you give me your opinion?
Thanks.

I think it possible to extend qbrowse to see what you need or implement it as separate dialog. Please, file/reopen the bug for qstatus.

Such open questions better to discuss in qbzr ML, IMO.

Thank you.
I reopened #162955(qstatus window) and added comment to it.

This is extremely useful and has been "hidden" in explorer for some
time. Use "bzr explorer --experimental" to turn it on. It will be a
standard feature once performance is improved (so you only pay for the
query when you want it vs always).
