## What is my target branch now?
Gitlab uses the term 'target branch' to mean "The branch **into which** new
changes will be merged". So, if you are using the gitlab interface to edit a
file, you will be able to commit those changes into a new target branch. Later,
if you would like to merge those changes into `master`, then `master` will be
your target branch, and the earlier one will be your source branch.
1. Change in master, commit to 'spell-my-name-correctly' target branch
2. Open a merge request with 'spell-my-name-correctly' as the *source* branch, and 'master' as the *target* branch.
3. Merge away!
