Please note that Ryan ran the svn2git conversion several times this
weekend, so any clones made previously will have nothing in common with
the final repositories, and a naïve "git pull" will try to produce
a merge commit. This is not desirable.

You should instead press the proverbial reset button. Assuming you made
a straightforward clone and only checked out a local master branch:

	$ git fetch
	$ git reset --hard origin/master
	$ git gc --aggressive

This fetches the new history, forces your local master branch to match
ours, and garbage-collects the old objects.
