Checkout a branch after release #244

wants to merge 2 commits into

I didn't like having to remember to do git checkout develop after doing a release. I hope this variable name is ok...


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.

This was not displayed in the "summary of actions", which is corrected in petervanderdoes/gitflow#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.
