## Description

In working on DM-3182 I created a branch tickets/DM-3182 of meas_deblender. I then made further changes to the main code that eliminated the need for changes to meas_deblender so I deleted its remote branch tickets/DM-3182 using:

 localhost\$ git push origin --delete tickets/DM-3182 To git@github.com:lsst/meas_deblender.git  - [deleted] tickets/DM-3182 

I then ran Jenkins again and it still found that branch of meas_deblender instead of using master. This may be user error on my part or a quirk of lsstsw. It's not a big deal – I worked around it using "git revert" to undo the changes on that ticket branch (thereby recreating the remote branch, of course). But if it is actually a bug in lsstsw then I'd like to at least report it so we have a record of it in case anyone else stumbles across it.
