Discussion on: How do you name your git branches?

I see feature branches as being temporary (the branch is usually deleted after merge). What I find to matter the most are the commits.

The solution for references in the VCS will probably depend on the new issue tracker. If you're using Github to track issues, the org/repo#issue format works pretty well for issues that are across repositories. If the issue is in the same repository, it can be referenced simply by the issue number (#issue format).
