By default, pull and merge in git will auto-commit if they don't see any
conflicts. You can tell them not to by using --no-commit.

(This isn't as scary as it sounds, since git also lets you "un-commit"
by using "git reset --soft HEAD^". Just try to do that sort of thing
only in your local repository -- it causes issues once it goes public.)

I could be wrong about this next part (since I haven't played too much
with this end of things myself) but I think the idea is that you "pull"
once you're happy with merging in the changes (and resolving any
conflicts that might arise) -- but before that, you merely
"switch/checkout" to test the changes (or otherwise review the patch,
eg. within GitHub, or by using "fetch" and then log/diff between HEAD
