Active bookmark on merge (BB-10176)

created an issue

Our team is trying to use bookmarks for feature branches, even if they are not fully supported.

We use master bookmark, to assign it to main history line, all other bookmarks are feature branches.

Most annoying issue with bookmarks for feature branches flow is master bookmark updates when branch is merged from web site. Bitbucket does not move master no new merge commit, and whole team always have to update master to new changeset manually.

This can be fixed if Bitbucket would allow to specify default active bookmark in repository settings as it is possible with named branches. If this default active bookmark is specified, all merges and other commits from BitBucket must be made with this bookmark activated.

Then, everyone will get master updated to right position in commit history.
