mercurial should help.

If upgrading Mercurial will involve introducing another detour, you could potentially check which version of the Galaxy code you're using now as defined by the "parent" revisions:

hg parents

This (or these in certain cases) might not be a repository "head" and thus won't appear in "hg heads". If you have the graphlog extension enabled, running the following might be informative as it should show you where you are (with a "@" symbol) in the code history:

hg glog | more

If you don't want to risk your working directory, you could first clone it to make something that you can then experiment with:

hg clone . ../galaxy-dist-test

Then, you'd move into this clone:

cd ../galaxy-dist-test

You might need to update to the version previously printed by "hg parents" above:

hg update <revision>

One might then assume that any desirable update would involve getting to the "tip", and so you could try a merge with that:

hg merge tip

If all of this works reasonably, you should be able to do the same merge on your real working directory (and can thus delete the test directory). The result of any merge will need to be committed:

hg commit

Anyway, these are just some thoughts. The crucial point is that you can clone the repository and then work with the clone, discarding it if your experiments go wrong. Doing this might be quicker than having to get a more recent Mercurial version installed.
