If you follow the instructions in the Download section to get a local copy of the PR, this works just fine. However, if you want to update your local copy when the PR has changed with new code, this turned out to be a non-trivial exercise in gitology for both me and Volker (and many more, I presume). I think this is understood from the context of the "Download" part.
