[mythtv-users] How best to move to git bleeding edge from fedora rpm

I would like to transform my myth box from a rpm based system to a
git based system.
mdean made a change recently that I would like to pick up.
Looked out there for advice on how best to move from one system to
the other, and I am drawing a blank from google.
I know a bit about how to use git (have been using svn at work for
over a decade now) and I have made a copy of the code.
What I don't understand is the best way to make sure I don't toast
all of my good settings so I can have minimum down time in the conversion.
What I THINK I have to do:
back up the mysql mythconverg database ( I have seen a script to do
it, don't remember where it was, but that is not a problem... I can find that).
rpm -q -a | grep mythtv
Inspect the list and delete everything that I think is provided by
the git repository.
Go to my local mythtv git repository and do a make (maybe config,
whatever the README says). Install the executables.
Restore the database.
reboot and pray.
Has anyone done this recently? Are there instructions somewhere?
