Indeed, i see it here;a=shortlog;h=HEAD

I don't remember what it said the first time, but now it says
"From ssh://
 * branch            master     -> FETCH_HEAD
Current branch master is up to date."

The second line looks suspicious to me...

It didn't say anything about conflicts.
I have some very basic experience with solving conflicts, but i don't
know anything about the technical details (how fetch works etc)

I don't understand how git branch is related to my problem?

I tried gitk once and decided that i prefer working with command line,
because it doesn't show me things i don't understand :P

I guess i don't need to download those...

I'm not sure - can i go through all these (i.e. call 'git remote add
-ft master -m master \ origin git://'
without affecting my work on currently existing local branches?
Or should i simply add that line to .git/config?

I see something interesting: it's written here
that when i call 'git pull --verbose' it should say "(...) From
ssh://address@hidden/srv/git/lilypond (...)".  When i try it, it
says "From ssh://" (i.e. without any

I attach what i see when i call 'git diff origin/master'.
Another clue: when i call 'git format-patch origin/master' it creates
17 patches, beginning with "Doc: NR-3.2 titling" (28 hours ago, i
guess that the last time i did a pull before messing with push
settings was sometime before this) up to "Fixed spacing in
space-alist; issue 1785".

I can only say that it is also present here:;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/master
