I want to stash work in progress, but I also want what I've stashed to be backed up on GitHub. Previously I've normally committed with a comment saying "WIP: blah blah blah", but I'd rather commit in completed stages rather than loads of "WIP:" commits which are really just a way to backup my work to the GitHub servers.
Is there a way to have stash to GitHub?
You can't put the stash on GitHub, but you can (and should) create a branch and commit to that:
git checkout -b temporary git add -A git commit -m "storing work in progress" git push
Then just merge
master (or whatever) when it's ready.
