Yes, but I didn't know that until I tried.

Because it could be messed up by the testing.

I don't know how to make sure my commits are never pushed.  I'm simply
too afraid of git, sorry.  I have a very simple workflow, which works
with a couple of git repositories I need to track for the projects
that use it to which I contribute.  It took me a while to set up that
workflow, including a couple of aliases I needed to keep me sane, and
I'm trying very hard not to deviate from that workflow.

I don't see the importance of this distinction: committing from git,
or even using git, is not a requirement for core contributors to
Emacs, except for Elpa.

Thanks.  Let's wait for a few days, and if you see no adverse effects,
I will commit the changes.
