     12=== Configure Mercurial ===
     13Mercurial uses an rc file to control its configuration.  There are several that will affect your use.  One set of them is in `/etc/mercurial` and will be controlled by your package manager.  The others are entirely under your control.  Each repository has its own `hgrc` file in `repository/.hg/hgrc` which can be used to configure mercurial's behavior when interacting with that repository.  Finally, there is `~/.hgrc`, which will configure mercurial's behavior for any repository your user account touches.

     15When working with Pidgin's mercurial repositories, we expect that you will have at least a minimum configuration that gives your name in the 'First Last <email@address.tld>' format.  To do that, two simple lines need to be inserted into an appropriate `hgrc` (I believe most people will want to do this in `~/.hgrc`):
     16{{{
     17[ui]
     18username = First Last <email@address.tld>
     19}}}
     20
     21Other useful options that can be set in the `[ui]` section of an `hgrc` are the merge tool and to make mercurial verbose or not:
     22{{{
     23[ui]
     24username = First Last <email@address.tld>
     25verbose = True
     26merge = meld
     27}}}
     28
     29Git diffs can be useful too, and making `hg log -v` the default behavior for `hg log` can be helpful:
     30{{{
     31[diff]
     32git = 1
     33
     34[defaults]
     35log = -v
     36}}}
