mercurial-importorig - Import upstream source code tarballs into .deb package Mercurial repository.
mercurial-importorig [option] ... tarball [tarball] ...
Import upstream source tarballs into a Mercurial repository. The first tarball must be the main tarball, see dpkg-source(1). The upstream sources are incorporated into the upstream branch, and merged into the default branch. It is possible to use mercurial-importorig multiple times to import several versions, but the versions must be imported sequentially starting with the earliest version.
For dpkg-source(1) format 3.0 (quilt), all patches are removed before the import, and you must manually reapply and refresh the patches. Finally you must commit the fully patched source, including the .pc directory.
