do it the microsoft way, only have a feature branch.
and the up-sell: even fixing a bug is a feature
ms release notes often read that way (as if there was never a bug):
- they seldom say, "we fixed the broken x"
- rather, "now you can do x too," perhaps adding, "a feature not fully implemented in the last release."

A bit confusing: what does "knowing this" refer to ?
In this case, their rules are their loss. I would attribute the fact it (evidently) bothers you to your deep commitment to your "craft:" I can only hope the recognition of that drive for excellence (and innovation !) in your work here balances out the emotional equation !

«... thank the gods that they have made you superior to those events which they have not placed within your own control, rendered you accountable for that only which is within you own control For what, then, have they made you responsible? For that which is alone in your own power—a right use of things as they appear.» Discourses of Epictetus Book I:12
Use git-tfs and make a local branch in the resulting git repo? Yes, it says it's not actively maintained, but that's onl;y since six months ago...
Is TFS like SVN in the way it manages branches? If that's the case, I can kind of understand not wanting too many branches - I always had trouble and pain when managing SVN branches (a long, long time ago...thankfully!)
Java, Basic, who cares - it's all a bunch of tree-hugging hippy cr*p
Ugh, there's almost nothing as bad as an SVN mindset in 2018.
(I say almost because COBOL and VB6 still exist.)
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

Please tell me you said "I agree, that's why I want to create ONE branch. Also, are you suggesting I work on these WITHOUT them being in source control? Or that I should be making suspicious changes to code in the main branch?"
I said it before, I met a guy with 5yrs of SVN experience that NEVER did a branch or a merge. I explained to him that he has 3 days of SVN experience, repeated many times over 5 years

...there can be a silver lining, like when someone I've never talked to before in a different department is really meticulous and is asking me all the questions about setting up an automated job that nobody here ever told me about, and I've been here for almost 2 years.
It's people that do their job right that I really appreciate.
