Hi Thorsten! Good point, most probably do prefer to create a branch in their existing repo. I'll probably use this approach in the future too.

The project that prompted me to write this post was for a coding school. I wanted an exact duplicate to leave my existing Rails repo as-is for my portfolio while fulfilling the requirements for this new JS front-end project. I didn't anticipate merging the two branches in the end, so I figured I would treat them as essentially separate projects.

Now that makes sense. :) Thank you for clearing this up.
