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).
