[gits] n00b git question
I do this kind of thing all the time, for example when I need to produce a copy of my CV that has some weird format requirement, like page limits.
With master checked out, just do 'git checkout -b <mynewbranch>', which will create the branch and switch to it. Then just 'git checkout <branch>' to move between master or your new branch.

I'd like to create a branch for this change that will probably dangle off the master, and then continue editing the master. what's the easiest way to do that ?
