But, as I said, when you turn away from your current work, which is precious, then you should make a commit, in particular, when you can forsee that you might not be able to come back soon. A 'git stash' is really only intended as a short-term make-the-worktree-temporarily-clean auxiliary storage. It is not intended as a long-term storage. For long-term storage, use branches. "Short term" is measured in seconds (rebase --autostash), minutes, perhaps hours, but certainly not weeks or months. At least, that's how I understand (and use) it. -- Hannes
