I'm (messing around) updating the osx-packager.pl script and was looking at your's for inspiration. OK, stealing everything I could! ;-)

Is my understanding of git correct?  I believe we should use 'git clone' to pull a current copy of the code onto a local machine.  Then 'git checkout' to switch from one branch to another.  (Same for tags?)  It seems to me that we need to use 'git pull', subsequently, to update our local copy with remote changes.  I don't see your code doing that.  A second run of 'git clone' errors out on me because the destination directory is not empty.
