Engineered deep refactor of the internal representation of changesets in memory.
This work opened the way for improving the recording feature (arbitrary selection of hunks upon committing) and in-memory rebasing for Mercurial. The biggest hurdle of this project was tackling the refactoring needed for the status and commit functions. This summer program provided a great educational process of learning the depths of internal Mercurial code, specifically the context, manifest, and localrepo objects. This experience was successfully completed with over 127 patches accepted.
