This one made me raise my eyebrows, first.
The only reason this test "passes" is because this particular
"pull", due to what local2 and server happens to have before this
test runs, is an "Already up-to-date" and a no-op. You are removing
this because it is not really testing anything useful, and if you
change it to test something real, e.g. by rewinding local2, it will
reveal the breakage.
Am I reading you correctly?
