I just had an interesting experience where I accidentally started a release instead of a feature. I didn’t realize it until I wanted to “finish” it. That’s when I saw the release/…. branch name.
I figured, maybe if I just change the branch name, I would be fine. And it looks like I was correct.
branch -m release/FEATURE123 feature/FEATURE123
and then, git flow feature finish FEATURE123
All was right with the world after that.
