I have had a problem with this in the past, which is why I was
suggesting this route.  I had an uncommitted file on my local
machine that wasn't in master.  I'd not added it with commit -a or
whatever, and so my build was OK but patchy-staging fell over.  I
wanted to avoid the possibility.

whoops, I forgot about that.  Just run
 git status
and if it doesn't complain about untracked files, you're fine.

It always complains about untracked files. aborted_edits and git-cl as a minimum. Until I moved all the LSR tarballs I'd put at the top of the source tree it complained about all those, too.

I've now worked out how to create a remote branch. My next experiment will be to push to it. Fingers crossed.
