Last week, we had an amazing 10th anniversary meetup for Mercurial! Sean Farley invited Facebook's Ryan McElroy told us about an exciting open source extension to Mercurial that the team at Facebook has been using for some time now. As with most commercial software endeavors, the code base at Facebook grows every day, and as a result specific operations can be time consuming. You can watch the talk here, or read my summary below.

During my tour of duty providing support for our Tomcat and Java based behind-the-firewall apps, a common concern was the effect of updating Java or the JVM in the host after installing the product, and how it may affect a running production system. As some operating systems will auto-update system libraries such as Java with little notice, this risks loss of service from mission-critical apps in the unlikely case of a Java breaking change. Another common scenario that comes up is a case where a specific Java version is required for the app, which may not match the default version installed in the host. In this case, we'll want to specify a Java path to override any environment variable set at the host level to ensure consistent app behaviour. Finally, admins who wish to deploy multiple apps that require different versions of Java will be able to invoke them on the same host, each with the correct JVM.

As our repositories grow large and complicated, it can seem impossible to find when specific strings of text were introduced to the repository. While the git blame command does great for showing you the most recent modification of the line, how do we find the earliest, especially considering that line numbers shift as commits and merges happen?
