Apart from that, what you don't see is that git doesn't allow you to
abbreviate commands, you always have to type them out :-)

You can abbreviate commands, just just have to define aliases.

Nah, git pull is the way to go - I like to update to the latest
revision before committing my local changes, or else I might need to
commit the additional merge diffs separately.
Apparently, only if you work with git-svn updating to the last revision
gets annoying.

What Ingo meant was that, I think, you need to do your development in a separate branch. You pull into the local master branch (just a copy of the remote branch). Then merge the pulled in changes in your development branch and then commit back (passing through the local master).

I hope I'm making sense... I'm not that familiar with using a DVCS yet.
