How can I create a feature branch from code changes in my development branch that I haven't checked in?
I have a bunch of changes in my development branch that I would like to create a new feature branch for. Can I do:
//switch to branch
git checkout -b uploadFeature develop
//push my changes to the feature branch (do this many times)
git push origin uploadFeature
//merge the feature branch into the master
git checkout develop
git merge --no-ff uploadFeature
Is that the right workflow? Is there anything else I need to be worried about? What happens if other people on my team are checking into the master, do I need to pull changes from the master into the feature branch every day?
