Auto-release from VSCode (very cool): do I need to merge the branch by hand?

I am using the (very cool) “Tag new package version” feature of the Julia extension of VSCode (it was presented in the latest JuliaCon (I don’t like to tag people here). Thanks for that.

I have just only one doubt: after everything works, the new version is released, etc, it seems that I have to manually merge the branch that was created. It that correct?

Related to that, what if I want to continue working on the project after triggering the new package script? I am doing that, but then I get a little bit out of sync with the mainstream project, and that confuses me somewhat (I guess I have to get more familiar with that and how to deal with it, it must happen all the time in collaborative projects).
