You are free to do whatever you want! :) I am not sure what your goal
is there though. Salmonella atm can only test whatever is in git. So
if you work hard on the latest and greatest stuff, we will know it
breaks only after it hits the master branch. So maybe that also isn't
that less stress you hope for?

Also I am a bit confused about the branches that are currently on git.
Which of these are considered "private" which are for the adventurous?
So far I always liked (and run) the experimental branch. 

That all said, I would just like to know how I should deal with git's
branches now however you decide. 

In any case should reflect the
current state of things or be deleted from the wiki.

Kind regards,

gradually become clear. Who can secure the condition of rest? Let
movement go on, and the condition of rest will gradually arise.
