It’s recommended that any changes you do, you do it on a feature branch. This feature branch should track the upstream/develop to make it easier to ensure that your PR is mergeable.
Create a feature branch and tracking upstream/develop
git checkout -b feature/something -t upstream/develop
Your output should look like below.
Branch 'feature/something' set up to track remote branch 'develop' from 'upstream'. Switched to a new branch 'feature/something'
Try to Name your branch based of the work you are doing for example: fix/broken-script-path or update/update-amis
