You shouldn't pull again, you should do what the error message says
and commit (after updating the index with your change.)

git status shows "unmerged" files, i.e. files with conflict markers.

I'm not sure what you mean. git pull usually does the right thing --
it pulls in all commits from the remote branch and adds one of its own
to record the merge.

IMO, if the pull was clean you might as well blow it away using
git-reset before you request a pull to make the upstream history a bit
cleaner. But I'm not sure if Wolfgang agrees with this.
