Git-Flow: Allow specifying a commit from which to start the release branch

Randy Smith 8 months ago updated 8 months ago 2

We are not always able to freeze the develop branch in order to start a release, so we need to be able to specify the starting commit on the develop branch.

git flow command: git flow release start <version> <base>

git command: git branch <branchname> <start-point>

Click on the commit to branch from and then invoke the branch action.  SG creates the branch based on the selected commit.

Than you, Jeff.  I agree that this works for basic branching, which would solve my issue, but I would still like for Git-Flow to allow this same capability so that we can use Git-Flow regardless of which commit we need to use as our starting point.
