Oh, I do that for any permanent branches. for-next branches are
ephemeral (at least in my trees) so I usually don't bother. I do
compare against for-next when and after sending pull requests with
proper conflict descriptions, so things are not likely to slip through
there. Hmmm.... if it's gonna be helpful to you, I'd be happy to
describe merge conflicts and resolutions in for-next merges. Would
that be helpful?
