Thank you for writing this document!

Based on what I saw in other projects when people moved to git, a common 
mistake that happens is people abusing `git pull` and creating merges 
where it's not desired, like in main branch when bringing remote changes 
to local modified repository.  Maybe it's worth to add a paragraph 
saying some words about always use rebase instead of merge.
