I'm not suggesting what you're thinking which I think is to push your
local work branches. I was thinking of feature branches and how it works
for people who test and contribute. I was also thinking of myself
because I've gotten into the habit of seeing in a browser the changes
between two branches, compare/b1...b2 commenting on a line etc. You have
something substantial you are making public now so why not push that
(squashed or maybe not) on a feature branch. Branches are cheap as you
know and you can do away with them and not pollute.

Daniel surely someone cares, the guy who wants it and curious people
like me :) But to your question, would it make it easier, I guess that's
best answered by your list.
