The current development version is identified by either a specific URL
(i.e. the unique location of an online repository st savannah) or by a
specific branch in this repository.

That is, the main "development version" of project $FOO may be:


or the 'main' branch in this repository.

Given a local 'clone' of this branch, say in ~/work/emacs/trunk a user
can get the latest development version with:

    cd ~/work/emacs/trunk
    hg pull --update                    ; or 'hg pull -u'

This will perform both steps of (a) grabbing any changes of the remote
tree that we don't have and stashing them in the local repository
storage area, and (b) check out the latest version of the sources.
