> I’m expecting the refactoring work to generate quite a large amount of commits. I’d prefer to do it in small steps to reduce the risk of breaking things. This would be a throw-away branch. No merging to the mainline, but ready features would be picked by hand and submitted for review.
fair enough. note that you're adding to the CI load, so try to batch
your integrations in as far as reasonable. as always, actually.
you didn't specify the source, so i assumed dev.

speaking of how hard is to get branches: the policy is quite clear that
done (and abandoned) branches should be deleted (or moved to a hidden
namespace, if you insist on archiving your throw-away branch). they
aren't, they are piling up. what exactly do you expect in return?
