It's confusing because it's unexpected. If you look at the GitHub
projects the majority don't use this so called "git workflow" (that
should actually be named "Vincent Driessen's Git workflow", its name
make it sound like it's the one true way to use Git, but it isn't).

Using feature branches is fine, but I'd advocate merging to 'master'
instead of 'develop'. If you switch the branch names as I suggested you
can keep the same workflow *and* make it less confusing for newcomers.
Best of both worlds.
