This reminds of standard application sustainment where you have
development (dev), test (tst or qa), and production (prd), and sometimes
sandbox (sbx). Developers have free reign in sbx since it is a
playground...you expect to refresh/rebuild it any time. Real
development goes on in dev, with preliminary testing. Dev does not have
real data, just developer entered data so further regression testing
with real data goes on in tst/qa. Tst/qa is refreshed from prd
occassionally so it reflects real data and can even serve for
performance testing.

Finally changes get moved into prd after testing is complete.
