Once a pull request has been approved and merged, should/can I continue using the branch?

I have a user story in Jira called "Add Summary Operator to Calculator".  From this story, I click create branch and get feature/proj09-14-add-summary-operator-to-calculator as my new branch to work with.  I picked develop as the source branch.

So then after a few commits, I create a pull request, get approvals, and merge it back into develop.  Maybe I manually pre-merged develop into my feature branch first, but it doesn't matter.  There were no conflicts and the merge completed.

But the branch is still there because I chose not to close it.  Can I continue and make more commits followed by another PR+merge, or is there something intrinsic to BitBucket that causes problems on your local working tree after attempting a double PR and merge on a single branch?

Any answers in the form of ".. it should... theoretically.." I will interpret as a NO.

Hi @Bill Durksen ,

welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Yes, you can continue and make more commits followed by another PR + merge.

It even makes more sense to me to continue, than create a new branch.
