I typically check the Mercurial history of a repository using the
log or the graphical
log -G method. I sometimes find it convenient to view only the tags or heads in the same log format. This is as if the log was filtered out to show only the tags or heads log entries.
This can be done by passing the resulting list of revisions from the
head functions to the log option:
$ hg log -r "tag()" $ hg log -G -r "tag()" $ hg log -r "head()" $ hg log -G -r "head()"
Tried with: Mercurial 2.8.2 and Ubuntu 14.04
