  2. Changes are regularly pushed to GitHub for backup (optional)
  3. When ready for a Review a PR is created in GitHub and a reviewer selected
  4. The branch page can be previewed by pasting the branch URL into to create a uncached development link
  5. Once reviewed the PR is merged to master - usually by Lisa
  6. The feature branch is deleted from GitHub
  7. The version Master is available for review at
