As I have explained in the other answer, I have tried this with:

But it was a bit difficult to manage as soon as you are 2
collaborating on the same patches.

No problem, hg-git is working perfectly for me and I can directly pull
the changes from github.
It is just that I needed mercurial to be able to test Olemis patches
in is mercurial-mq.

Using mercurial-mq seems to be quite nice from what I have seen to
manage/maintain patches.
I have no experience with Github pull request, but I understand that
the principle is more or less the same. So if diff/patches are not
working for some specific ticket, are we allowed to submit patches
through Github pull request ?

Thanks !
