I use some scripts :

- Before creating a patch (eventually depending on one already present
in the patch series), I call dom-apply-patches[1].
- When I'm done with editing patches, I call dom-save-patches[2].

So, yes I create a fresh branch everytime as Frédéric pointed out. The
details are in [1] and [2]. It's clearly useless when working solo but
makes things a bit simpler when working within a team.
