git mergeis not what you want to do, particularly several times. Seemingly
git pull --rebased- which is marked as dangerous and bad in the man page is what you want. This brings back the darkest days of trying to track and update a large, long running cvs branch: but worse. Incompetant git use: no doubt.
git pull --rebasewould want to apply the same changeset twice ? apparently nonsensical but after skipping a number of such sillies, the diff to the original merge tag evaporated: near victory. Annoyingly Matthew's identical merge went with, apparently no problems, amazing. Dinner, bed.
