Is this git handling of a problem on my macports-ports fork&clone OK?

Our suggested method of updating a fork is here: 

Hopefully you're not committing to master locally, as that's just asking 
for trouble. If you're not, no resetting or force pushing of master 
should be necessary. If you have uncommitted local changes, you probably 
need to use --autostash when rebasing. If there are conflicts, you 
resolve them when the stash is popped at the end.

If you then create your PR branches starting from master, everything 
should work pretty smoothly.
