Think of repos as channels.
You don't get an update until the channel has new bits, despite any new bits being available elsewhere.
You sadly can't switch channels without uninstalling+installing from the new channel.

So, even after I install the new 1.9.2_multi nightly build app catalog (after having uninstalled, let's say, Firefox 1.0 from the Mozilla Catalog). I won't get an update from the channel until after I install a 1.9.2_multi nightly build from that same folder?
