+1 for having staging-branch. Unless we are able to run, Bvt's on the
feature branch, there is no confidence that merge of feature branch to
master won't break master. IMO, its not un-common to have a master branch
which is kept stable with regular builds and BVT test passes, then have a
development branch where the features land up first go through the BVT
then pushed to master. On regular basic there can be 'reverse integration'
(dev branch to master) and 'forward integrations' (master to dev)
