Proposed port patch provided by gjb
As part of the set up and ongoing running of hg-beta.freebsd.org, I make use of a patch against devel/mercurial which allows me to append a suffix to author names during the svn -> hg incremental conversion process.
clusteradm@ are working to streamline the package management on cluster hosts and it would simplify things for them if the hg-beta.freebsd.org jail did not make use of any custom compiled software.
The patch in question is at . and after discussion with upstream [2,3] it was decided not to fold it into the official Mercurial distribution.
I'm hoping to carry the patch in our mercurial/devel port as an off-by-default option which clusteradm@ can then enable for cluster package builds via poudriere.
I'll take it

devel/mercurial: Add FREEBSD option for authormapsuffix patch
Add a patch by lstewart that allows appending a suffix to author names
during svn -> hg incremental conversions.
Functionality is provided by the "--authormapsuffix" option, and can be used in
conjunction with "--authormap".
This has been submitted upstream , but will not be merged into the
official distribution, at least in the short term.
