We follow a variation of the "gitflow" development model. Development occurs
on the "develop" branch, and when a stable state is reached, the changes are
merged to "master". Releases happen from "master". Ideally, you would start
from a state in which master and develop are identical, then commit to
develop, then occasionally issue "git merge develop" from master.

The maintainer is responsible.

No, pull requests always go into develop, by convention.
