Staged Changes

A staged change represents the creation of a new object or the modification or deletion of an existing object to be performed at some future point. Each change must be assigned to a branch.

Changes can be applied individually via the apply() method, however it is recommended to apply changes in bulk using the parent branch's commit() method.



Staged changes are not typically created or manipulated directly, but rather effected through the use of the checkout() context manager.
