Using Git-Flow

Git-flow is a set of git extensions which provide high-level repository operations that work according to Vincent Driessen's branching model.
This branching model is widely in use among teams using git as their means of source control, and serve as a guide to developing software in a managed fashion.

This presentation is broken into parts; a brief introduction, the main branches, the supporting branches, and then some demo / references.
