Commit the changes anyway.

Yes, you could do that, but that's a lot of trouble.

How many of you are there ?  If it's only you, just commit the
changes and keep committing better changes on top of that.  If there
are more people involved, say up to ten, update all the time and
commit often.  If you are part of a very large group, it can make
sense to work on branches (but even there, there are drawbacks).
