I have a workflow for which I can't quite find the git tooling.
Essentially what I want is like 'git commit -a', except that I
want the resulting commit on a branch I name instead of the current
one, and I want my current index not being modified. At the moment
I emulate that via
git commit -a -m TEMP": `date` $*" && \
git push -f nsd master:temp && \
git reset HEAD^ && \
but that a) changes the index (ok, not that bad), and it
will change my current commit in the case that there are
no unmodified files (no commit -> head doesn't point
where I want). Ok, that can be prevented by --allow-empty.
But still I'd like to know if there is a cleaner solution,
esp. with respect to the index.
(Ah, the point of all this is to take the exact current worktree and
push it to a compile&deploy server; I don't want to chop my work into
commits before I even could compile it.)
