Yes, or you just cant do a 
git clone ssh://it://
then, git branch my-local-branch
and that is all, you can work there and commit as Steffen points, then
move between your work and `master' using git checkout.

IMHO it is not pain to learn a bit from git just enough to survive.
I'm really a newbie using git.

Having a quit look on the wiki page is really nice, describe quite good
the workflow, and as Steffen saids there are just two or three commands
there needed to survive.

Or if stills you prefer, your patches are always welcome :)

Also I started #debian-boinc  IRC channel on OFTC, at this moment I am
a lonely soul there :), so if some one else do IRC have in mind this
