You must be misunderstanding, then, because "git pull" never does that
kind of atrocities.

Not sure this is the best way.  But if you want to start from a clean
slate, then this is the sequence of commands:

  git checkout <file>
  git status

If the last command says that only that your branch is ahead of
origin/master, then continue:

  git pull

If this causes merge conflicts, resolve them by editing and issuing
"git add" for each file whose conflicts you resolved (Emacs should do
this automatically when you save the file).  Finally:

  git commit
  git pull
  git push

The final "git pull" is for the slim chance that someone pushed to
savannah while you were resolving the conflicts.  If that pull
produces conflicts (highly unlikely), repeat the whole process, and
only then push.
