Yep, please switch to oss/for-next instead of oss/master.  I'll keep
them in sync normally, it's just that I'd like to have a little
flexability WRT what is in for-next.

I think Dave's suggestion is reasonable:  Keep him as a contact, add me,
and s/xfs-masters@xxxxxxxxxxx/xfs@xxxxxxxxxxx/.  It really helps that
you two are in the same timezone.  ;)
