"Abort" means *nothing is done* as far as I can tell from the
documentation and experimentation with a couple of toy repos.  In
particular, files that were modified on remote are *not* updated
locally (although the commits and dependent objects are in the origin
branch), and there are *no* conflict markers added to the file that
would have conflicts if the merge was conducted.

I guess this procedure will create a commit without any of the most
recently pulled content.  He will need to do the merge again, which
may result in more conflicts.  (I can't be sure since I can't figure
out how he got the repo in that state.)
