I have cut a branch off of the HEAD in order to add some new functionality to
the product.  I do not want to "poullute" the HEAD with my commits until this
functionality is stable.

Two questions:

1) How do I prediodically merge from the HEAD down to the branch so that my
   branch is current with whatever else is happening?  When I merge from the
   HEAD down to the branch do I only get the current tip revisions?  I need
   to ensure that I get everything that has changed since the last time I
   merged down.

2) How do I prediodically merge from the branch up to to the HEAD so that the
   HEAD can see what I have been doing?  I would want the HEAD to get
   everything I've done since the last time I merged.
