It's my understanding that "tip" is not what you want to use - that just
refers to the most recently committed revision in *any* branch.  See
http://www.rabbitmq.com/mercurial.html for more.

I would also welcome a release of the Erlang client, as it can be a bit
onerous to keep track of the versions under the current system. Is there any
way the community can be of assistance in this effort?
