Well, the thing is that "develop" name does not reflect what I want: 
stable patches for use in with [testing] repo to avoid broken things 
(for example, the last commit [#1])

I normally push my patches to github on "djgera" branch, patches they 
needs [testing], and will go to master very soon. (in other words this 
branch will become "testing" in main git repo (projects.archlinux.org)
My branch "experimental" (github) is re-based on "djgera", and this is 
what you call "develop", this branch many times includes things that 
needs building packages yourself (mostly mkinitcpio in old days, but in 
these days mkinitcpio has a fast release-cycle).
Other branchs can exists on github (like now "efi_stub" [#2], and in the 
past has been "pxe_curl", "dm_snapshot", etc...) but that is another 
history, they are re-re-re-based until gets nice "shape".
