[plt-dev] pushes & pulls & building

In order to do a push this morning, I had to do a pull. Which
suggested that I should probably rebuild; I started this process at
9:30 this morning (it is now 12:30) and I am only just started on
rendering the docs (my changes involve changes to the docs). It is
taking so long because there have been pushes since I pulled and those
pushes required long rebuild times; well, that and my machine is slow.

So, this doesn't seem feasible. What do others do?

If I had a way to push from my slow machine to my fast machine I could
do the build and testing there, I think, and I would have been done
hours ago, I expect. Is that a fruitful path to consider?
