Yeah, that reads much better, but I do prefer to see something that
explains this is often "just make sure you use the one that suits
your project and always use that". How about something like this?
With no repository or branch on the command line, `git pull` needs
to be told how to integrate the changes with your history.
This can be done via either `--merge` or `--rebase` option, but most
people would want to decide which method matches the workflow of the
project once, and set the configuration variable `pull.rebase` or
`branch.<name>.rebase` to stick to it; see linkgit:git-config.
