Q: Do you have to rebuild an actor each time the source code is changed?

A: Yes. It needs to be built into an image, saved in a registry, and later on run in a container.

Q: In Git, what is the difference between pushing changes and making a pull request?

A: Pushing changes to the remote branch based on the content on the local branch. The pushing of code changes is usually made to a branch parallel to the one you want to eventually push it to.

When creating a pull request, the code is meant to be reviewed, or at least pass all the test suites before being merged into the target branch.

Q: Based on your knowledge and experience, is the apify push command worth using (in your opinion)?
