Rename Stashes Edited

Hi Sourcetree Team!  I'm a longtime user, longtime fan of Sourcetree. 

Here's a feature suggestion that seems like it would be easy to implement, and could be useful to many...


I find that often there are some stashes that I have created during Feature Development that I end up re-using afterwards, and it would be helpful to be able to rename them to something else, especially something that does *not* include the branch prefix.

Here is the underlying git commands that do what I would love to see in the GUI, as a right-click menu item called 'Rename Stash', along with 'Apply Stash' and 'Delete Stash':

Use case:

In Drupal 7 development, oftentimes there are issues with modules that can only be easily debugged if I add a temporary snippet of code to core files. Currently I re-use a Stash commit I created for this, but it would be nice if it was named:

"DEBUG - Drupal Entity: Add output"

instead of  

"On [my-long-branch-name-here-created-by-jira] - DEBUG - Drupal Entity: Add debug output" 

This format, which is imposed by Sourcetree (and Jira branch creation), while useful during feature branch development, is not easy to read or identify Stashes that I may want to re-use after that branch is gone.  

Here is a screenshot link:


I Hope you like the idea and decide to add it to a future release!

Warmest Regards,
Terrance Orletsky
