I'm new to Git and loving it. It would be helpful in the Commit dialog if you could show which Git branch I'm committing to so devs don't make changes to the wrong branch. I'm working in a solution that has multiple repo's some show the branch in the solution explorer and some do not. As a last check having the branch name in the commit dialog would be a last check to avoid error.


P.S. Anywhere beneficial to show the branch please do such as even Review & Commit.  Expose the branch name where possible to keep any dev from committing to the wrong area.
