Oh shit. Something like this:

- I've seen the messages in emacs-devel that I did an error syncing
  tramp.el from the Tramp repository. Panic.

- I've fixed this in the local Emacs repository, and committed it.

- I've tried to push tramp.el, which failed (due to further commits in
  the remote Emacs repository).

- I've pulled from the remote Emacs repository, getting a conflict in
  tramp.el. Glenn had fixed the problem already, but there are
  whitespace difference between his and my change.

- I've fixed the conflict in tramp.el, and committed it.

- I've tried to push, but I was said that it's not possible because the
  previous merge wasn't finished.

- ERROR: I've reverted all open changes in my Emacs repository.

- I've pushed.

I must claim, that I'm still in fight with git. After a merge conflict,
it let's *other* items edited I have never touched, and I often don't
know what to do :-(

Conclusion: I will try to implement a local pull-before-and-push-after
commit policy. This shall minimize merge conflicts.

I am very sorry that I have brought to you additional work, again.
