A questions about branches and workflow...
I've done several weeks' work on a website feature, with the code all on
the "dosomething" branch. This code has now been transferred to my test
server for the customer to test. So the branch is not finished and there
will almost certainly be more work done on it, even if just refinements.
While the customer is testing that feature I need to start work on the
next, and my instinct was to create a new branch. But where should it
branch from? If I branch at the point where "dosomething" was started
none of the quite-far-reaching work done in the last few weeks will be
in the new branch and that could get quite confusing. OTOH, if I branch
from the current state of "dosomething" I'm branching off unfinished work.
Can anyone advise on the best way forward?
