It does much more than that.

There is a manual process for merging pull requests. It's several
steps and error prone. It offers no discussion thread, no workflow.

Then there is github's UI, which checks that merging is possible does
the merging automatically when you ask it, offers workflow (cancel,
close), ties pull requests into issues, and offers a single place for
discussion. Take a look at the hundred or so pull requests we've had
on the Guide. It's simple, consistent, and idiot proof.
