git checkout -b VOVbugfix/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 VOVbugfix/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.
The release manager will be responsible for merging the pull request into the current release branch (in this case release/1.0.0).
