      Description

      Windows is case insensitive and so when renaming a branch's capitalisation, an error will occur (branch already exists).

      SRCTREE-713 implemented ability to rename branch.

      BCLOUD-11637 was closed but I think an opportunity was missed to improve sourcetree.

      It would be useful to add an option to force rename in Sourcetree, ie perform:

      git branch -M newName
