There is a public repo A on github. I have cloned it as B on github.
Using SourceTree, I have cloned it locally.
What I want to do is make some changes D, E, F and send pull requests to original repo A.
However, if I make commit D and push to B, then create a pull request to A, then make commit E and push to B and then create a pull request to A, then the second pull request includes both D and E, which is problematic.
I imagine that this could be resolved by using branches, but not sure how.
Also, in SourceTree if I create a branch, then it doesn't seem like additional files are created in local clone - so how do I know which branch I am working in?
Okay, so lets say I create 3 new branches, and work on 3 ideas. Then, to create a pull request for A, do I need to merge these requests into master branch of B (which would probably create the same problem as not having branches) or can I send pull requests to upstream directly from branches C, D, and E?
