Git Flow -> create production branch first

Why does Git Flow says that Create production branch first altough the origin branch is called master (it works in GitGraken).
FYI, I cloned only a branch of the origin tree.

Hi Stefan, the production branch is usually called 'master' as you can see in the article Smart branching with SourceTree and git flow.

Production branch (usually called ‘master’)
This branch represents the latest released / deployed codebase. Only updated by merging other branches into it.

Let us know if you have any other questions!

Hi Anna,

but I'm reading this on my bitbucket server:

Typically, this branches from the development branch and changes are merged back into the development branch.

So master cannot be branched from development
