pull: don't say that merge is "the default strategy"
Git no longer has a default strategy for reconciling divergent branches, because there's no way for Git to know which strategy is appropriate in any particular situation. The initially proposed version in [*], that eventually became 031e2f7a (pull: abort by default when fast-forwarding is not possible, 2021-07-22), dropped this phrase from the message, but it was left in the final version by accident. * Signed-off-by: Alex Henrie <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
