This is a feature request coming from issue 182 comment 8. http://www.monotone.ca/docs/Using-packets.html describes, how to manually bundle packets for transfer via file. It would be nice to have some mtn subcommand or other tool which can bundle up all the data required to make a given revision (typically current local head) available in a remote repository. That would be massively useful for attaching patches. I've written a small perl script that automates the steps from the docs, but it requires explicitely naming of the revisions to bundle. Extending that shouldn't be too hard, but having this integrated into mtn would be even better. What do you think? I might add that other some DVCS have such features: http://doc.bazaar.canonical.com/bzr.2.4/en/user-guide/sending_changes .html http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/Bundle http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-bundle.html
