Would it perhaps be an option to use actual feature branches for this
in the git repo, one for each committer and for now for the
2.3 branch only?

That way you can follow the first part (seen from the left) of the
diagram depicted at the start of this article:

Practically I could then work on my own feature branch, then push
there as often as I want to share my still in development changes with
the world. E.g. show them to Bauke, the EG, etc and work on that
branch from different systems (e.g. my laptop, workstation, etc). Then
when the feature is deemed complete I can merge and/or cherry pick it
myself into the (local) 2.3 main branch and make the diff for review,
and eventually push it.


Kind regards,
