Basically, if you look at the network graph, everything makes sense.  In 
git, you commit to your local branch, and then push to the remote 
branch.  If two people are making commits at the same time, you now have 
two separate branches.  The one who pushes first can just push straight 
to the repository.  The one who pushes second must reconcile their 
commits with the other person, resulting in these automated 'merge' 
commits, and the appearance of a second temporary branch.
