IIRC, "latest" refers to the bleeding-edge most recent version checked  
into BuildBot's own Git repository. "current" refers to the most  
recently *released* code (tagged v0.8.4p2), which I don't think  
includes Pradeepkumar's changes.

I'd agree that both sections should eventually match each other in  
"latest", but if you are using the 0.8.4p2 release, the corresponding  
link should be http://buildbot.net/buildbot/docs/current/Source-Checkout.html#Source-Checkout
