When I don't have any networking work present, that tree is

No need to delete it. When Linus merges your stuff, net-2.6 tree becomes equivalent to linux-2.6 tree.

When you next create and push local changes, a few days later, it is guaranteed that there will be no conflicts between your local and trees.

Ok, works for me.  I'll try to do this from now on.

Cool. FWIW the only time you should need to blow away and reclone a tree is when you reorder changesets..
