Hi Thomas,

If I understand correctly, you want to save the 'M's for later and get back to 
a clean master. There's a couple of things you can do.

You could do 'git stash' to squirrel away the changes until a later 'git stash 
pop'. The problem with this is, you may forget to pop.

You could also commit those changes to another branch and revisit the branch 
later (git checkout -b another-branch && git commit --all). Even if the changes 
are unfinished, you can always refactor the commit history at a later date.

If you don't care about the changes, you can totally discard them with 'git 
reset --hard branch-name'.

Once you have dealt with your changes, you can make a new branch with 'git 
checkout -b branch-name' and the new branch will diverge from where you were 

Hope that helps!
