How would it work then, if, ..  I enjoy the fact that I can run Master, 
use the tools in the tree to build my Debian packages, and then install

And if by upstream, you mean the distribution?  They can be quite behind

Buster does have 2.8 at the moment, but Buster can be very unstable for 
consistently building environments on demand.
