I copied it from somewhere. But you are right, 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?
   - develop
   - master
Branch name for production releases: [master]

Which branch should be used for integration of the "next release"?
   - develop
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.
