Let's go for "user/", if people are OK with that.

I'd rather not have multiple namespaces in this case, since it doesn't
really make much of a difference to us whether it's personal or
company-sponsored.

Agreed, let's rename the active branches once we agree on the naming
scheme.

I would revert the order of the last two commands, so that you first
add the new branch as a copy of the old, and then delete the old branch.

when you add the new branch, the commits are "pre-existing" and therefore
trigger no email for the commit. Just one email for the new branch.
