Then I need to rebase dev/staging.

Huh?  The point is that not that we won't get "random breakage".  The
point is we won't get unnecessary random breakage in master, and that
master is never rewound (thus providing a dependable basis for private
patches and branches), is good material for bisection, only getting
material that has passed the complete round of tests available at a
given point of time.
