I copied it from somewhere. But you are right,
http://nvie.com/posts/a-successful-git-branching-model/ uses "release-".
Hum... That original blog post also uses "hotfix-" rather than "hotfix/"
and doesn't use any prefix for feature branches.
OTOH, git-flow tools defaults are different, at least on my Windows machine:
D:\modular-boost>git flow init
Which branch should be used for bringing forth production releases?
Branch name for production releases: [master]
Which branch should be used for integration of the "next release"?
Branch name for "next release" development: [develop]
How to name your supporting branch prefixes?
Feature branches? [feature/]
Release branches? [release/]
Hotfix branches? [hotfix/]
Support branches? [support/]
Version tag prefix? 
So it looks like there has been some evolution in branch naming conventions.
I'm inclined to go with the git-flow defaults.
