You're right. I'll modify that.

bzr doesn't work for me. I'm on a 512 Kbps downstream internet connection, =
bzr doesn't stay alive for n hours, and when it terminates, it never
resumes. So, I use git repo. But I think I can find out corresponding bzr
checkout from the git commit. So instead of using EMACS_REV based on date,
I'll just use bzr revision no., as date won't be accurate as git mirror is
only synchronized every 6 hours.

Thats not always right, which is why I added the date when I pulled the
I'll push the latest snapshot along with the changes you recommended soon.
