To delete a branch see

As for the push syntax, I don't have my computer with my Git notes turned on right now, but I reckon

git push dev/issue4943 HEAD:staging

is mixing up your branch with the staging branch.  For me, the syntax is:

git push origin HEAD:yourbranchname

Possibly a good idea to wait until someone more expert in Git syntax pops up.

I don't believe it's possible to build from a local branch. Nothing to stop you creating a new branch on Savannah and building form that, then deleting
it once the experiment is over.

Hi Phil,

let's see, if I understand correctly:

For a public branch, I'd checkout a local branch, say: dev/issue4943
Then make it public with
 git push origin dev/issue4943
Further changes added to this branch with
 git push dev/issue4943 HEAD:staging
Invoking GUB with
 make LILYPOND_BRANCH=dev/issue4943 lilypond

Though, I don't know how to delete said branch from the official repo,
after all work is done.

Is this what you mean or something different?
