Configuration Files

    Mercurial reads configuration data from several files, if they exist.
    Below we list the most specific file first.

    On Windows, these configuration files are read:

    - "<repo>\.hg\hgrc"
    - "%USERPROFILE%\.hgrc"
    - "%USERPROFILE%\mercurial.ini"
    - "%HOME%\.hgrc"
    - "%HOME%\mercurial.ini"
    - "C:\mercurial\mercurial.ini" (unless regkey or hgrc.d\ or mercurial.ini
      found)
    - "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mercurial" (unless hgrc.d\ or mercurial.ini
      found)
    - "<hg.exe-dir>\hgrc.d\*.rc" (unless mercurial.ini found)
    - "<hg.exe-dir>\mercurial.ini"

    On Unix, these files are read:

    - "<repo>/.hg/hgrc"
    - "$HOME/.hgrc"
    - "/etc/mercurial/hgrc"
    - "/etc/mercurial/hgrc.d/*.rc"
    - "<install-root>/etc/mercurial/hgrc"
    - "<install-root>/etc/mercurial/hgrc.d/*.rc"

    If there is a per-repository configuration file which is not owned by the
    active user, Mercurial will warn you that the file is skipped:

      not trusting file <repo>/.hg/hgrc from untrusted user USER, group GROUP

    If this bothers you, the warning can be silenced (the file would still be
    ignored) or trust can be established. Use one of the following settings,
    the syntax is explained below:

    - "ui.report_untrusted = False"
    - "trusted.users = USER"
    - "trusted.groups = GROUP"

    The configuration files for Mercurial use a simple ini-file format. A
    configuration file consists of sections, led by a "[section]" header and
    followed by "name = value" entries:

      [ui]
      username = Firstname Lastname <firstname.lastname@example.net>
      verbose = True

    The above entries will be referred to as "ui.username" and "ui.verbose",
    respectively. Please see the hgrc man page for a full description of the
    possible configuration values:

    - on Unix-like systems: "man hgrc"
