Accept Pull Requests and Auto-Close Branches

Does your team use branch-based development to work with one repo? Do your pull requests look like this?

Bitbucket has developed a feature that will help you maintain repo cleanliness without the tedious task of closing each branch from the command line.

Now when a pull request is sent across branches, a checkbox will appear giving you the option to close the source branch once the pull request gets accepted. Bitbucket will automatically close the source branch for you, tidying up your team’s repository.

Closing branches after pull requests (until now) has been a manual process that usually never gets done. Save your team time, automate the process, and keep your code organized with the simple click of a box.
