Drop Guard recipes: Testing your updates in a feature branch instance

With this post, we are starting a new series - "Drop Guard recipes". It will be all about things which help us to be more productive, efficient, provide better service to our customers and ensure better security for Drupal. As you might expect, it will be mostly Drop Guard related, but we promise there will be a lot of interesting stuff for everyone. Stay tuned!

First of all, let's agree that if you or your team uses some sort of modern development workflow - which essentially means the path the code makes from the point it was originally written to the production website, you should be familiar with feature branches concept. Apart from traditional "dev", "stage" and "master" branches, you create separate named branches for website features or code updates which are not yet ready to be merged upstream.
