There is no branch, everything happens in master.
Feature branches: Should be very short lived, if they live longer than 2-3 weeks look at splitting them into smaller changes. Might not be best suited for ReviewBoard review, alternative review approaches are allowed. Rebase/split into independent commits is possible, force pushing is currently disabled on the main repos (possible on personal clones, or with new branches).
Lack of long term stable branches caused concerns from packagers initially, try it nevertheless for now and see how well it works.
