3.4 Advanced Git procedures

Note: This section is not necessary for normal contributors; these commands are presented for information for people interested in learning more about git.

It is possible to work with several branches on the same local Git repository; this is especially useful for translators who may have to deal with both translation and a stable branch, e.g. stable/2.12.

Some Git commands are introduced first, then a workflow with several Git branches of LilyPond source code is presented.
