To clarify, the guidelines about how many rebuilds are okay for which
branch are in item 8 of the manual section Submitting Patches :
300 dependent packages or less
master branch (non-disruptive changes).
between 300 and 1,200 dependent packages
staging branch (non-disruptive changes). This branch is intended to be merged in master every 3 weeks or so. Topical changes (e.g., an update of the GNOME stack) can instead go to a specific branch (say, gnome-updates).
more than 1,200 dependent packages
core-updates branch (may include major and potentially disruptive changes). This branch is intended to be merged in master every 2.5 months or so.
These are rough heuristics that help us manage big changes effectively.
