Instead of using a staging branch that only contains your code, and a separate branch with NetBSD source, it’d be best to have your changes _on top of_ the NetBSD source. That makes it easiest to actually see what your changes are relative to mainline. Right now one had to check out your changes to some separate directory and use tools to compare the files, instead of checking out your changes and doing `git diff netbsd-9` (or whatever your branch is based on).
