Branch Specifier regex fails - passed to git rev-parse?

      There is an issue with certain patterns passed using the : regex specifier.

      I am trying to match a branch with the format release-YYYYMMDD so I am using the following pattern



      Here is the output from the console using this pattern

      Started by user User Name

      > git config --local --remove-section credential # timeout=10
      > git rev-parse :origin/release-\d{8}


      {commit} # timeout=10
      > git rev-parse refs/remotes/origin/:origin/release-\d{8}^{commit}

      # timeout=10
      > git rev-parse :origin/release-\d




      # timeout=10
      ERROR: Couldn't find any revision to build. Verify the repository and branch configuration for this job.
      Finished: FAILURE

      If I change the pattern to something like this `:origin/release-\d*` it does not error, but it also is not specific enough since it would match any number of digits.
