See attached picture. The text "on how WE use mercurial" is not helping 
in detecting your intention, we need "information how YOU should use 
mercurial", conceptually. I propose adding something as the very next 
row right after rabbitmq-erlang-client snapshot. Something like

|| To get snapshot matching the latest released 1.5.4 server code: || hg 
clone -v1_5 ... || browse repo ||

and also "See more information on branch matching between the server and 
the client code repos _here_".

Or smth.
