How did you merge? I tried checking out the old version and merging,
and got a lot of merge conflicts (I think you got your merge point a
little wrong, but that isn't a big problem). Did that happen for you?

Or maybe you used "git merge -s ours"? The "-s ours" flag on the wiki
was just for creating the merge point, as it tells git to use the
"ours" merge strategy, which basically performs no merge at all
(roughly similar to using 'svn merge --record-only' in subversion).
The text on the wiki should be clearer here.

Do you want to have master identical to develop?
