Most of the plumbing for having branch name aliases already exists
in the form of symbolic references, and people do use them for this
purpose; but I get the impression that it's not really supported
officially, and I'm not aware of any porcelain features to
facilitate this use-case.
I'd like to
Given the following symbolic reference:
$ git symbolic-ref refs/heads/m refs/heads/master
Correct in 2.6.6:
$ PATH=~/git/git-2.6.6:$PATH git branch
m -> master
Wrong in 2.7.0:
$ PATH=~/git/git-2.7.0:$PATH git branch
m -> m
Still wrong in current version 2.8.0:
Updating the proof-of-concept script for this feature request.
I'm quoting the entire original message for reference, just because
it's been a while since I proposed this.
