Suggest branch name based on commit message when editing in GitLab
Problem to solve
Generate branch name based on commit message
When I edit a file directly in GitLab, I can create a MR if I select "Start a new merge request with these changes". First of all, It's not obvious that changing the name of the branch will allow me to create a MR. But I also find tedious to have to enter a branch name that will be basically the commit message in snake case.
Change the UX to invite the user to create a MR, and prefill the branch name with the commit text in snake case.
What does success look like, and how can we measure that?
I don't have to type a branch name anymore.
