That looks interesting, I haven't seen that before. I will look into that,
hopefully I can find a non-command line equivalent.


Or you could use the language bindings.

I am using perl SWIG bindings, I believe they are somewhat similar to ...

But the docs seem to be very action based, and I don't see anything related
to holding a transaction. According to my knowledge there aren't actions
that don't end in a commit if it is working on a repository url.

If I am wrong, please show me these actions / parameters for these

Current merge behavior says merge changes from a repository url to my
workspace. So I could checkout out a production branch, and merge in the
committed test branch.

What I'd like is to say: "My production branch is at this repository url,
merge this test repository url into that" there would have to be difference
in the mine / theirs conflict settings. And don't require a workspace to
work in.
