I would like to select a set of files to work on them, then merge them back to 
the dev branch.

My problem is, that I have two repos, a production one on the live server and a 
local one on the local development server.

When I make a diff between them, I see there are too many changes between them. 
These repos are new, so they have no chance history.
Usually I use Git Extensions and use command line only when feature is missing 
from Git Extensions. 

Earlier I tried to use submodules to separate a group of files, while I do work 
on them. 
But submodules handling is nightmare, using them caused more problem, than 

I also tried to use branches to separate some unfinished feature developments, 
but later when I compare to head, the other changes done since the unfinished 
development are also listed in Git Extensions. 

This is why I would like to group some files then work on them and merge back 
after finishing development. 

Rebasing would be also a solution, but I found, that I can only rebase within a 
branch and not between branches. 

I try to make the content of two repos similar as much as I can, doing commit 
of selected files, but there are still too much difference. 

I'm thinking of using subtrees, but not sure if it will be solution for my 

Any ideas, suggestions?
