You're describing something different. The PostgreSQL folks aren't using the merge capability of git at all. They're doing manual diff+patch. This makes sense in a CVS environment where merging back to truck was incredibly, outrageously, ludicrously painful. Not so for git.

The PostgreSQL folks may or may not be using the merge capability in their personal workflow. I certainly use it. We just require that what you apply to the master branch is rebased.
