Well, by 'same thing', I meant that 'hg tip' gives me the same information that Vladimir was reporting:

Actually, there's no hgrc file in the .hg directory. The contents are
$ ls -al .hg
drwxr-xr-x+ 3 rick Users 0 Feb 1 16:10 .
drwxr-xr-x+ 16 rick Users 0 Feb 1 16:10 ..

This is on Cygwin; however, my Linux box has exactly the same contents and gives exactly the same message to 'hg pull'. Perhaps I did the wrong thing when I first got the source. I'm pretty sure I ran
hg clone http://hg.debian.org/hg/xemacs/xemacs-beta
when I first got the source. Maybe I need to start over?

Scratch that. I was looking through some of the Mercurial-related messages that I've saved, and I found one from Michael Sperber on 12/7 (see http://calypso.tux.org/pipermail/xemacs-beta/2007-December/012893.html) that gives the following commands for initially getting the source:
hg init xemacs
hg pull http://hg.debian.org/hg/xemacs/xemacs-beta
*That's* how I initially got the source. It looks like I should have used 'hg clone' instead?
