When the documentation says "Forces a merge" without any clarifying statement, that implies to me that it always creates a new commit. I'm certain that I'm not the only person who is going to think that. Could you please clarify the documentation for --merge and pull.mode to avoid confusing users? -- brian m. carlson / brian with sandals: Houston, Texas, US +1 832 623 2791 | http://www.crustytoothpaste.net/~bmc | My opinion only OpenPGP: RSA v4 4096b: 88AC E9B2 9196 305B A994 7552 F1BA 225C 0223 B187
