At work, the VCS we use on my current project is Mercurial and I'm a pretty hard-core IDEA user (IDEA-9). Is there a wiki or website that shows how to use hg4idea - at least the simple use-cases such as

  • adding files  
  • deleting files  
  • updating files
  • merging and dealing with merge conflicts
  • dealing with HEAD issues
  • creating a new branch


I have been mainly used to SCM systems such as CVS, Subversion and ClearCase (unfortunately). I believe that the learning curve with Mercurial is a bit steep since it's a distributed SCM and there is a bit of a paradigm shift involved. I'm just interested in learning how to use hg4idea if it makes my life easier compared to hg (command line interface under Linux).


Thanks very much.
