I like to put several commits in a single branch, which is based off of
the lastest master and named whatever makes sense (checklist-fixes,
for-robby). All the changes are made locally in that single branch, and
I would carefully 'squash' the commits using 'git rebase -i' before push
them to public. This branch would then be deleted after it is picked.
