Hi Rolf,

You mean I've been feeling like shit all this time for nothing?
... I guess that's good. :)
Thanks a lot, I'll look into it.

When pulling new remote changes you can do “git pull –rebase” which will avoid the (scary, but completely harmless) merge commit git added for you (I don’t know how to do that with TortoiseGit, but I assume there is a way)

I think I messed up. Like, badly. 

See this: 

I don't know what this merge is about (I'm its author), but it looks bad to 

Here's exactly what I did: I made 5 minor commits locally, double checked 
everything to make sure I don't fuck (reviewing each change, comparing them 
with the previous version, etc), then went on and pushed my changes to 
master. The 5 commits appear fine (although I didn't expect GitHub to pick 
up the date I committed them locally, as opposed to using the push date)... 
but there's also this 6th change that looks nasty to me. 
For what it's worth, just before pushing, I tried to pull to make sure I was 
up to date, and my TortoiseGit crashed at this point. I didn't think much of 
it, but now I'm wondering whether this could have a relation with this 

I have no idea what I did, and am really sorry and embarrassed about this. I 
very much want to contribute to the Mono project, but I guess I should step 
back for now. *sigh* 

Can anyone shed some light about what needs to be done? Apart from kicking 
my ass.
