However, what happens is I end up accumulating lots of feature branches that eventually have to all be deleted once they've been merged.
Is there a way to select several branches at once and ask SourceTree to delete all of them in one go? Ideally, it would delete all the ones for which git issued no warnings and skip those which produced warnings (because I don't want to accidentally delete any branches that haven't yet been merged).
