Use commit git rev-parse HEAD + if git diff --quiet then '-dirty' else '' to capture git information at shed_upload. At first use this information in the commit message to HG, but longer term we should collect the data on the tool shed in a more semantically useful way.

See also #169.

Are any of the Galaxy community using hg for tool development? If so, adding something similar for mercurial hashes would be nice.

Also, thinking out loud, I'd like a safety feature to stop me from trying to upload uncommitted changes to the ToolShed. i.e. rather than just adding "dirty" message (which is useful), should we prompt the user for confirmation? Or abort unless a --force flag is used? (following the git command line conventions, maybe not the best idea).

I would happily merge a PR to add hg support - but I don't intend to spend time on it personally. I think tool development is moving to Github and it would seem like wasted effort. I think we want to actively encourage Github specifically and short of that git more generally.

I like the spirit of the second idea a lot. For convenience and backward compatibility - my preference would be to invert the default (disallow -dirty commits with a flag - like --no_dirty - though that particular flag seems poorly named) and document how to modify the default with ~/.planemo.yml.
