Hi, Im looking to begin using git flow extension at my company where we already have a large number of repos. How can git flow be initialized on existing repos? can you simply run 'git flow init -d' in an existing repository? If so is this run when in the develop or master branch? Any other tips, comments on best practice to begin using the git flow extensions with existing repos, all of which already have develop and master branches btw. thanks in advance...
