TL;DR

Saving some typing when dealing with the blog.

From time to time I have to fix some error in a post of the blog, which can cause some major annoyances if I already canned some future post. Luckily, this is a solved problem (Rebase and retag, automatically).

When I do this, I usually want the changes to appear as soon as possible, without waiting for the automatic publishing to kick in (usually the next morning). So I switch temporarily to master, align it to the remote, …. wait! Why do I do this?
