This is correct. You fetch the source of certain revision. So atomicity
is not the problem. But would this also mean that if there a more than
one project in a repository I should use a specific revision when I do
the check-outs? I must not use HEAD?

I think I didn't understand that right: Why did you mention the possible
error? Normally I would cancel the build process if something like this
