Is there a way to upgrade from the latest release of Sage (6.9) to the latest beta version?

I would prefer not having to build the source of the beta from scratch, since initially building Sage on my machine took nearly 20 hours.

Standard way is to do

cd my_sage_directory
git pull trac develop

This should not take as long, but still maybe a few hours.

You may need to set up trac as a remote in this event, if you built from a tarball and not with git. But as long as you originally built from source this should work fine.

I did the following:

sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:aims/sagemath
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sagemath-upstream-binary
