Hi all.  This is just a simple question.  Most of the discussions of
"merge from master to my branch" I've seen recommend this:

  git checkout master
  git pull
  git checkout <mybranch>
  git merge master

I did things this way at first, but as I understood git more it seemed
to me that far simpler, and completely equivalent (with the exception
that the master branch is not updated, which is fine) would be:

  git fetch
  git merge origin/master

Is there some downside to this alternative that I'm not seeing, or other
consideration (philosophical or otherwise) that should be taken?
