I think that:

It will retrieve the version that is current as of the last hour.

For example, if a bug was fixed at 7 minutes past the hour, and you
did a check out at 10 minutes past the same hour, that bug correction
would not be included in your download. You will have to wait for the
next hour to roll over before you get it.

If you keep track of the version numbers between updates you will get
an idea of the number of changes that have been made.

If you watch the changes as you do the update, you will get an idea of
whether or not to rebuild, for example, if the only change was to the
Mongolian translations, then you probably wouldn't be interested in

but I might be wrong
