OK, so I decided to trying committing through Git by doing ``git svn
dcommit``. But it told me that Misc/NEWS was out of date. So I then
did ``git fetch git-svn`` with a ``git merge git-svn``, which I
realize now is a mistake since I am used to other DVCSs using "merge"
for when there are changes and "update" when there are none.

So Git tells me there is a conflict; fine. I go in, fix the file, and
then try to commit Misc/NEWS. It says I can't do a partial commit, I
have to commit everything; fine. So I do a full commit, but now I get:

Misc/NEWS: needs merge
Misc/NEWS: unmerged (3dc56ad4e5918676358c4e20be738b37ce8d50d0)
Misc/NEWS: unmerged (ad4c19cecfb584be37d8b9c138791daa83ad9285)
Misc/NEWS: unmerged (853df55fc6ac71bcea0eb340a8ab52b348db9e8c)
error: Error building trees

This is not winning me over on the usability side of things. =) So
what do I do now to get this tree back in a usable state so I can
commit (although, thanks to ``git show``, I might patch a svn checkout
so I don't have to wait on this)?
