Yes, the -D option might do the trick.

Not you cannot get just the latest rev on the main branch.  From the manual:

            .... This command requires  that  you  specify  a
          date  or  tag (with -D or -r), so that you can count on
          reproducing the source you ship to others.

My philosophy about release management is so against using dates to mark
versions that I rarely remember the option exists!  ;-)

In this case it should suffice.
