It would be nice to be able to check Salesforce changes into a new branch in Github (or other git repos). This would provide admins an easy entry point for their changes into a git repo without having to learn the esoteric git command structure.
We were looking at other ways of solving this.
-JIRA/BitBuckit has a nice little "create branch" button that allows them to create a branch and admins can use gearset to deploy to it (firing the CI job to push their change up into the desired sandbox). This is problematic for us though as we have Enterprise GitHub already which has much more limited JIRA integrations.
If Gearset could handle this part for us, we wouldn't need to switch to BitBuckit
