EGerrit/New and Noteworthy/1.4



When you checkout the last patch-set version of a commit, if you already have downloaded a previous version and the code has a perfect match with the new version you try to download, EGerrit will propose to modify the branch with the latest version. Ex: you have the branch "change/<review-id>/<ps#2>" and you try to checkout patch-set 3, if the code on the previous checkout of this commit is matching the new code, EGerrit will propose to rename your branch to "change/<review-id>/ps#3".

The end-user can rename the checkout branch when using the default naming.
