Creating a feature/bug branch
When you are working on a bug, feature, or improvement, you will need to create a branch.
Branches names should be prefixed with your own GitHub username. If they have an associated issue, the issue ID should be added as a suffix. For example:
git checkout -b USERNAME/that-new-feature-1234
git checkout -b USERNAME/fixing-that-bug-1234
USERNAME should be replaced by your username on GitHub and
1234 is the
ID of the issue tied to your pull request. If there is no related issue, you can
leave the number out.
NOTE: It is ok if your branch name shows up as
USERNAME:USERNAME/fixing-that-bug-1234 when you create the pull request
