I have added an example in the basic tutorial (arx.2.2,108).

There is now a subsection in Branching and Merging that talks about bug-fix branches (arx.2.2,106).

I don't quite know what you are asking for here.

I think this is now described in the subsection on bug-fix branches (arx.2,2,109).

I may have missed it, but I haven't seen any discussion of how to look at an earlier revision, nor how to set myself up to make changes to an earlier revision (such as to create a patch for an old shipped version).

Then, how would I get back to the head? How would I pull a fix between revisions? (I assume I would branch at the older version, and then pull the fix into that branch, but an example would be extremely helpful).
