No worries Benoit, this is all very new and in flux. Thanks Adam for looking
after consistency with our processes. I realise this was all a bit hurried.

I don’t much care for whether we do [fix|feature]/jiranumber-summary or
jiranumber-[fix|feature]-summary or just jiranumber-summary or whatever
else (that is sensible) as long as we stick to one of them.

I went with the lazy consensus version of jiranumber-[fix/feature]-summary
because that’s how I understood the proposal, but then I could have been
wrong. Sorry about that. Now is the time to fix this.

I’m happy to change this to [fix|feature]/jiranumber-summary or
[fix|feature]/jiranumber_summary, or an entirely new (sensible) formats

Please cast your bikeshedding opinions. I’ll make a call after 72
hours based on the responses (note that this isn’t a vote, I’ll just
make an informed decision for the group). I’ll update this thread
AND make a formal announcement of the branch naming scheme.

Thanks for all your patience!
