To get remote updates you need "bzr pull".  "bzr update" updates the
tree to have last changes committed locally.

Thanks, I'll try that.

Pretty confusing for an occasional user of these tools when functions
with the same name do different things in each of them.  ;-)

Actually, hg required the exact same commands: "pull", followed by
"update", for the same reasons (there's a commonly-enabled hg extension,
"fetch", which combines those, plus "merge").

Hmm, yes, that was actually the sequence I always did with hg, although I never really knew why. ;-)

So let me summarize what I have learned now over the times.
In order to get an update of a local copy of a source repository I have to do

svn update           with Subversion
hg pull & hg update  with Mercurial
bzr pull             with Bazaar
git pull             with Git

Right?  ;-)

About my original topic: with the correct command I had now a current wget source tree, but the process also had deleted lots of files with seemed to be necessary to proceed. And I had to figure out that I also had to run a "bootstrap" script now to really collect all needed files. But I have the hope that from now on everything will go smoother.

Best regards and thanks for the patience,
