Hi Jeff,

What I meant (and what I do) is that I clone a branch I want to work on
to my private repo and commit my work there. From time to time, I rebase
it on the latest official master branch so that it's easier to merge
when the work it's done. When the code is ready, I merge it to the
master and push to the official repo.

I simply check for other people's changes from time to time and
cherry-pick/merge them.
