What you do for your individual testing is separate from what the test
infrastructure does. You have a local repository, in which you can have a
local X/develop branch that you test against the remote Y/develop. This is
independent of what others see.

Of course, if the testing infrastructure tests your remote X/develop against
Y/master, you can't push your changes to Github until Y/develop is merged to
Y/master on Github. Then again, one might well argue that your development
in this case ought to happen on a feature branch that is not develop. (And
the same can also be said about Y's development.)

Anyway, as I said, both testing systems have their pros and cons. We'll need
to pick one and settle on it before real development can resume, though.
