I think this certainly belongs in the maintainer manual, but probably not
in pull-requests.rst.  There are a lot of things about repository
management that seem to trip up even experienced maintainers; pre-pull
merges is just one of those.  I would love to see a proper guide on when
and how to do merges in general.

CCing Dan, who has ambitions for the maintainer manual as well, just in
case he has anything in mind here.

Thanks,

jon
