The code is in rsync_update.py, around line 217, in the function

I use the branch.missing_revisions() function to determine if there is
anything to pull/push.

First, I use the x-pull location to get the "b_parent" branch, and then
I ask:

missing = b_parent.missing_revisions(branch)

Which is supposed to return a list of revisions which are missing on the
"parent" branch, but exist on the local one. If this is empty, I turn
around the query and ask "missing = branch.missing_revisions(b_parent)"
which tells me if the local is missing anything from the remote.

Looking at branch.py, Branch.missing_revisions() just looks at the
revision-history files, truncates to the shorter length, and assumes
that if the last one matches, they all match. (And returns whatever is

It all seems relatively straightforward. Are you sure you didn't
uncommit/modify your revision-history file on the local tree?
