I used it yesterday out of curiosity..It worked quite well for me.. 
There are a few things that are strange,like trunk is now called 
master...When you do a version check you get this:

greg at tvserver:~$ mythfrontend -version
2010-12-03 11:14:42.690 mythfrontend version: exported [exported] 

So it will be a bit hard to track what version you are running,but I 
suspect there will be growing pains..

To get the fixes branch (I don't use it ),you need to change to the 
mythtv dir then:
  cd mythtv
git checkout fixes/0.24

I believe that gets you into the right branch..
