As soon as my patches are picked up, I rename my internal branch to
be the same as its remote counter part. Usually I rebase my local
branches on these remote branches, such that directly after queuing
they are identical.

Usually I delete (local) branches as soon as I am either confident
they go in as is or they are not very interesting to me.
(e.g. a one off typo fix is developed on detached HEAD, sent out
and I forget about it. In case a discussion ensues, I have to either
take my patch or redo it. There is no local reminder of these things
in the form of a branch)
