>From my notes it looks like the following:

  hg pull [cpython repo url]

Choose the branch to be merged into and the branch to be merged from.

  hg up [branch to be merged into, may include "-r <revisionid>"]
  hg merge [branch to be merged from, may include "-r <revisionid>"]

Watch mercurial bring in all the changesets from the point of common history.

  hg commit.
  hg tag "v3.3.0-slp"

Be absolutely sure you did it right, and aren't going to push
unremovable changes.

  hg push [stackless repo url]

It should be that easy.  In my case, I got the "into" and "from"
branches backwards to begin with and the merge was messy.  After
reversing them, it was pretty straightforward.  That wasn't in my
notes, just a vague recollection.

Anyway, good luck,
