    If I only release into my tree's for-next branch what I would release
    into my tree's for-linus if I was to send a merge request to Linus right
    in this moment, then I won't need advance notice of a merge window.

    IOW, treat -next everyday as if the merge window was open right now.

    I'm sure it is not that easy for the larger subsystems or the
    infrastructure trees. However, Linus' late -rc announcements are plenty
    of advance notice, at least for a merge period as long as two weeks.
