I am wondering why every git workflow merge develop into the production branch.
Is there any reason why we cannot just leave the old production branches and create new ones from develop (in case we have only those two "special" branches). What is in there what need to be merged. Anyway every hotfix should be put into develop aswell. I googled and read many blogs about this but no one mentions anything about it.
We are moving to GIT from CVS and wondering what is a good way to use branching.
