That's simply the nature of distributed version control systems. There's nothing about any repo that makes it more "truthy" than another (aside from an imposed human convention).

Yes, just like if I commit to a local repo around the same time as you do, then we both push. It's just branches that get merged (or rebased).

Again, they do get the same commits, after all the pushing, pulling and merging is done. Just the nature of DVCS.
