I think a better way is to make a new commit to the repo and not allow
non-fastforward commits that could screw up the repo. I don't think
you can restrict non-fastforward commits to particular users but maybe
I'm wrong. If not and we want to be able to fix mistakes, maybe the
staging repo is a must and only certain trusted people can merge stuff
between the staging repo and the main repo.
