Usually M because there are no conflicts.  Occasionally there is a
conflict so it says C.

One more hassle of using Git.

The point is that the output from pull is long and mostly meaningless,
so I didn't look at it at all.

I could not have omitted that.   Emacs would have warned me when I tried
to save the file.
