> Hi all,
> please review this patch that adds the new command `git hg-export`. The `git hg-export` command prints information
> about a Git commit in the format expected by `hg import` (i.e. it is very similar to the `hg export --git` command).
> This command is primarily useful for backporting changes from a Git repository to a Mercurial repository as a
> backporter can now run:  $ git clone https://git.openjdk.java.net/jdk $ cd jdk
> $ git hg-export <REV> | hg -R /path/to/hg/repo/for/jdk11u-dev import -
> The command `git hg-export` will output the commit message in the format used by the OpenJDK Mercurial repositories.
> The command will also output the correct author and date.
> Testing:
> - [x] Manual testing of `git hg-export` on Linux x64
> Thanks,
> Erik
