One possible technique its to check out the current index into a temporary git 
work directory (which can be set as part of the command).

Given that you may not have committed the current index, I see the options as 
creating a temporary branch just to commit the current index, or using one of 
the 'git reset' options to extract the index into the temporary working 
directory. 

Hope that gives you some ideas for browing the manual.

  Subject: [git-users] test version in the index


  After making a number of changes, I decide I want to commit some of them and
  continue working on the rest.  I do this by moving the desired parts to the 
index.
  Before committing, it would useful if there were a way to test this commit 
alone,
  say, so it doesn't break a build.  Is there a convenient way to do so?
