This survived without changes since the bzr instructions were written.
With bzr, these merges both ways didn't matter.  Also, bzr doesn't
automatically commit a successful merge, while Git does, which might
explain what you see.

So I suspect that the instructions need to be revised to some degree,
to reflect the differences.  Feel free to suggest them, or simply edit
the page.
