you need to make a branch

 git checkout -b Eliot    "that will make a branch at the current
HEAD/commit point with any of your pending changing"

stage & commit any work to the Eliot branch

checkout Cog

merge Eliot        "To merge any changes into Cog"

push Cog back to github.

> I'm stuck.  Don't know how I detached from the master.  I'm seeing this:
> You are in 'detached HEAD' state. You can look around, make experimental
> changes and commit them, and you can discard any commits you make in this
> state without impacting any branches by performing another checkout.
> If you want to create a new branch to retain commits you create, you may
> do so (now or later) by using -b with the checkout command again. Example:
>   git checkout -b <new-branch-name>
> HEAD is now at ed4a499... CogVM source as per VMMaker.oscog-eem.1958
> I want to make this the new master, and then add a commit.  I'm stuck.
> Git mavens, help please.
