How to summarise the current working folder state¶
We want a one-sentence description of the current state. This needs to give an indication of what the "parent revisions" are, i.e. whereabouts on the graph we are -- it isn't intended to summarise what changes we've made in the working copy (that's the job of the rest of the Work pane).
Some possibly promising formulations:
For the "normal" case (everything up-to-date)¶
State: At the head of the default branch
[head of a non-default branch]
State: At the head of branch "blah"
State: Merged but not committed
[somewhere on a branch that is not a head]
State: On the default branch; newer revisions are available (consider using Update)
State: On branch "blah"; newer revisions are available on this branch
Hm, doesn't really work because the other revisions are not necessarily newer (they may be contemporary)
