I didn't like having to remember to do git checkout develop after doing a release. I hope this variable name is ok...
Added a test to see if the branch exists before trying to delete it
Checkout out a branch after release is finished by default
In what I see in the actual nvie code, the develop branch is checkout for the backmerge.
So after doing git flow release finish <version> you are on develop.
git flow release finish <version>
This was not displayed in the "summary of actions", which is corrected in petervanderdoes/gitflow-avh#24.
If you do the git flow release finish -p NAME, then it leaves you on the master.
All I know is that I always ended back on the master branch after doing a release. And I often forgot to change back to develop.
