Is there a reason why this is not in Factory?

IMHO one reason was that within this project it is/was not well maintained. Not necessarily because of us as maintainers but because upstream also seemed to be very slow.. So in the past it broke with almost every upgrade of mercurial and it was not reasonable to not update mercurial because tortoisehg was not available in a compatible version.

So that maybe was a reason. I cannot really tell if the situation changed since then and what @develop7 thinks about it nowadays?

Yeah, the upstream was slow and sloppy back then; things are improving now though — the release cycle has been promised to be in sync with Mercurial and so far they're keeping it; and they have started to publish release notes. Which is definitely a good sign.

I'd definitely gave them a try, but bear in mind outdated THG prevented Mercurial from upgrading and I don't know what does Tumbleweed policy say about that. We could work that around by bundling Mercurial to THG package, but I've no idea how to do that.

It still is - HG 6.0.0 is out now, but tortoise is still on 5.9.3...

To fix the build failures, we should either run the tests only "if %{with test}" or install pytest unconditionally (instead of "%if %{with test}"). I’m not sure what was the point of "%if %{with test}" originally.

The tests are skipped on Leap because they fail with an xvfb error
