If on a feature branch I just do

git push my-fork HEAD

this way I don't have to type a branch name at all (well, obviously the  
branch is
still called HSEARCH-123)

See, what you are loosing here is the ability to cut&paste the branch name  
and then paste it
into the browser to open the Jira

How does this help git-complete? One less tab? I am not convinced. I am  
not convinced and
personally I like the full issue key. It just feels more right.
