I'm kind of liking inserting an empty git commit at the beginning of a long-ish branch, that just has a commit message explaining the purpose of that branch.

@federicomena That'd certainly work better than naming branches after the SHA of the message explaining the branch's purpose.

@federicomena No. :)

(Sometimes I can't stop myself from suggesting really outrageous things. Sorry.)

@liw I am NOT getting nerdsniped into looking if "git checkout abcde" tries to disambiguate between branch name and commit name. I'm totally not.
