I agree. I think everyone should have a personal branch, a personal (and 
equal) set of Jenkins test jobs for his branch, and then either go through 
a pull request or merge changes directly into the master branch if they are 

I usually work on the master branch directly, but it's certainly true that 
some changes eventually turn out to be too large for a direct commit 
(series) on the master branch. That's easier to handle with personal branches.
