Presumably because trunk was merged from that branch.

There's some tension in the definition of push/pull.  Some like to
think of it as being intimately related to the concept of mirroring --
push to the remote repo, pull from.  On the other hand, it's sort of
just a synonym for smerging to and from (with update in the pull
case).  We should probably make a more firm decision about that at
some point.
