That "On the other hand" sentence is hard to parse. How about
On the other hand, if you do not list any remote refs, 'git pull'
will fetch all the <refspec>s it finds in the
`remote.<repository>.fetch` configuration and merge only the
first <refspec> found into the current branch.
Actually, "first <refspec> found" is also wrong, isn't it? I'm not sure I
can craft a succinct summary of pull's merge behaviour for this note!

Hmmm, in my 2.0 man page output (asciidoc 8.6.9 on Ubuntu) there's no empty
line between the end of the note and the "Some short-cut notations" line,
which I think is inconsistent with the rest of the formatting. The HTML
version looks fine though. Is there some asciidoc-ese that would insert a
line there for the man format?
