In git, branching is cheap and easy. You do it all the time (you’re not? Well, you should). Sometimes, though, you create a new feature branch, only to come to the conclusion later that the name you gave it does not cover the stuff you’ve been doing.

No problem for git! Renaming a branch is really easy:

git branch -m old_branch new_branch

That’s all.
