Right, the problem is not so much the changes as the accumulation.
The sooner the two forks are re-merged the better.

After that, the easier way to "sync" things up is to only have one
development branch.  Having one in Emacs and one on github is asking
for trouble.

You can use the Emacs code as the main place for development, by
the way (this is up to you, but I generally recommend it).

Yes, the more we wait, the harder it gets to sync them back.
