    You can add the hwmon testing tree (from MAINTAINERS):

    > git testing

    This tree gets rebased pretty much whenever Linus adds a new tag. As a
    rule of thumb, you should merge from Jean Delvare's i2c tree first. The
    hwmon/testing tree does not usually depend on anything else.

    Thanks & regards,
