I haven't experienced any issues where feature branches inhibit CI. However, I can envision it becoming complicated at scale. That is testing multiple feature branches in isolation would require many environments.

Typically I work quickly. So I don't build individual feature branches. They go through code review and testing before being merged into master. Then they are deployed.

I have worked on teams that build sets of features. Normally their CI job has the ability to easily switch the source branch.

IRT CI and multiple envs to test feature branches, isnt there a way to segment an existing env to host a particular feature and then using existent LLs compare the results thusly? understand if this would be marked OT.
