I just did `git pull'.  This didn't merge the upstream changes into
my repository.  Instead it put the upstream file change into my working
directory, discarding the other contributer's change log.  If I
understand correctly, that is.

I think the best thing for me to do now is `git checkout <file>' to
revert that changed file, then `git pull --rebase' to get the change
again (and likely, quite a few others which have been done since), then
`git push' to get my change into savannah.
