git checkout -rb VOV-xxxx
Completed bugs should include fixes as well as good test coverage that documents the problem. This will prevent the same thing from coming up again after code rewrites / feature changes. Once you are done push your commits to your branch.
git push origin VOV-xxxx
Merging bug fixes
Once a bug fix is ready to be tested by team members it needs to be merged into the current release. This should be done by issuing a pull request from the same repository. For help on how to do so check Github's documentation.
