You use as reference branch whatever you have based your work on.  If
you expect your work to be shortlived before getting it accepted, basing
on dev/staging might be easiest to do.  But dev/staging is expected to
be rebased frequently, possibly taking out patches that turned out
wrong.  If you need to rebase a long-running branch often on
dev/staging, that might be a nuisance.  Also, your rebase will _not_
take out patches that were removed from dev/staging, so there is some
change that you'll accidentally commit them again.

So the safe way is to base off master, and only rebase to dev/staging
when you actually push to it, and maybe even do that in a detached head,
keeping your development branch based on master.
