This is all on the master branch.
I guess what I'm looking for is a way to do a stash, but not only
stash the file diffs, but also any commits that were made.
If that doesn't make sense, here's a very simple example of what I
usually do at work:
Work on some low priority project where I fix one file, commit it with
a message, then fix a second file and commit it with another message.
But I'm not done with the whole project yet, just two files so I'm not
pushing my work yet.
But then someone gives me a high priority task, so I have to work on
that immediately. What I usually do in this instance is just reset my
HEAD^2 commits and then stash my changes, fix the high priority,
commit and push it then apply my low priority stash to continue
working on it. But now I've lost the commit history which was the 2
commits I already made because I had to reset them in order to do the
high pri fix.
I wish there was a way I could stash my local commits (resetting my
working directory) but when I reapply that stash have all the commits
and commit messages come back with them. And I would like to be able
to do this without making a new branch.
Does that make sense?
