I have deployment branches, and then push from there.  It's git, but I'd
assume you can do the same in hg (though I've never used it)

Thank you Tobias and J.

For the moment I think I will use Tobias' way, because I use Mercurial only 
for a few days and I don't know if it supports hooks made in bash.

I know that git is made in C and some perl scripts, that it is faster, much 
advanced than Mercurial (which is made in Python), but unfortunately it 
doesn't work well under Windows, and I do the development under Windows and 
the testing and production use under Linux...
