I can't understand why Mercurial won't let me push when patches are applied. From my point of view, applied patches affect only the current workspace and pushing isn't influenced by the state of the current workspace.
In other words, I would expect that if I made some commits, then started a patch queue, then pushing would push those commits, and ignore anything going on with patches.
I realize that there probably is a good reason for this and it's my understanding of how mq works that is wrong. So what am I missing? Why can't Hg push just the current outgoing commits?
