They just switched to git from bazarre recently, it's possible they are using it idiosyncratically at the moment

It's more than just possible, it's likely. They have recently had long flame wars because old timers don't want to, and think they shouldn't have to, learn about the git's "index" and think git should be changed to push on commit like cvs. Give them time.

This reminds me that with git sometimes you don't have anything to push to.

Example 1: a repository is local by definition and if you work alone you can back it up to your USB disk and never push it to any remote.

Example 2: there are many ways to send diffs to other developers. Push is one of them but you can also use git-format-patch and git-send-email together to mail them to your team.
