You could have simply changed user to your login in the .git/config file. No 
need to delete lines there... The "git config" does really nothing else than 
adding/changing lines in .git/config!

Your commit 32c3ef2b7cdde3abc72738f0173b78f8d28d65c3 ("add Janek Warchol to 
authors") is the current origin/master... Seems to have worked!

What does 
   git status
Did the "git pull" give any messages? In particular, if there are rebase 
problems, you'll have to resolve them, do "git add [file-name-comes-here]" and 
then continue the rebase with "git rebase --continue". Remember, "git pull -r" 
is the same as "git fetch; git rebase origin/master", so you also need to know 
how to work with rebase (and how to resolve conflicts).

Quite useful is also "git branch"...
BTW, I'm using qgit as graphical frontend, where you can easily see all 
branches, all tags, or look at each patch separately and even see who last 
changed each line of a file.

Here I also have:
        fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*

That is not really required if you only intend to work with origin/master. It 
just causes "git fetch" to download all branches on the server (e.g. the 
translations branch, the 2.14 branch, the developer branches, etc.).
