We try to stick to these conventions as much as possible. Think of them as strong guidelines!
Daily branches have the developer's initials, the date, and a small title. For e.g.: Asha Kumari making a branch on 12th April to work on "updated search algorithm", should name the branch something like
ak/12apr/update-search-algo. This gently nudges the developer to merge the branch in a day or two, since this is just a convention and not enforced in any manner.
Release branches have an identifier that it is a release branch, and the date on which the branch is scheduled to go live. For example, the release branch cut on 10th December 2018 will be named
release/2018-12-17to indicate that it is the release which is scheduled to go live on 17th December 2018.
