Sorry if this is already discussed, but few areas that are unclear to me with this process

- does every fix, however minor it be(say a signle line), needs to be developed in a separate
branch? And then we have to merge these individual branches to develop for every fix?
- In that case will direct check-ins to 'develop' branch be not allowed?
- If not, if CI fails on develop branch, how will one know what caused the failure? Was it
some direct checkin Vs some feature/fix merged? Will we revert all the small feature/fixes
that were merged to develop branch upto the CI baseline? If yes, wont the developers that
did not cause the break get penalized unnecessary?

- Lastly, why can't this process be implemented on master? Why are we introducing another
branch for the same purposes which the master branch usually serves?

I am -1 on this.  We should not start implementing this until all processes are clear.

Exactly. This just shifts pain from one branch to another. 
I don't see any gains from this, either.
I vote "-1".

Agree with Animesh. Didn't see any gains from this, we just shift pain from one branch to
another, so vote -1.
