Thanks, Stefan.

We discussed on IRC about this. I see 'staging' as being a development
branch and 'publish' as being the trunk, and changes being made directly
on the 'trunk' or on the branch according to how the developer feels
about needing or not needing a staging point. From that point of view,
this merge would be a catch-up merge and would be the normal expected
practice for anyone working on the staging branch to do from time to
time and immediately before promoting changes to 'publish'.

However that was just my assumption -- we haven't established that work
flow as a community.

Various other ideas and points were made on IRC -- see the log, starting
here, 25 mins long:
