So I propose the following: Forget the two branches model, start a `master` branch with either the current state of `staging` or my proposed move to `stable`  and release flashrom-1.0 right away.
I believe staging/devel/etc branches in projects managed with git are usually a troublesome legacy from old CVS/SVN days where branching/tagging and patch management were expensive. They shouldn't have even copied into Git repositores at all. Also flashrom historically has a very flat and straightforward development model, so why making two branches at all?
From the package maintainer's point of view it would be easier and
simpler from if flashrom just have one single monotonically increasing branch (master?) with tags applied to some commits eventually (I prefer more frequent tagging though), rather than two branches where the purpose of one is to be blindly merged into another.
