Sorry. That's a long topic. That's why I included the link to more extensive documentation. To do what Jill describes, I:

1. Bring in upstream changes as described here: Party_Sources__Vendor_Branches_

(if needed... depends on the nature of the project and whether changes go in upstream:) 2. Keep a checked out copy of the external repository alongside my own repository for looking at intermediate revisions (between my merges), log messages, etc.

There may be scripts floating around address this in a more automated fashion, but I've never looked into it because the above is easy and has met my needs.
