Once done, you probably just needed to do a pull before making additional 
changes in your local copy.  But since those would be the only files that 
changed upstream, a rebase (or the stash option I mentioned earlier) 
should resolve it.

The only time a rebase should be necessary is if there are changes both 
remote and local that need to be reconciled, IIRC.
