    Indeed, this solves the keeping the list up to date with whats
    in the tree, and has provision for arbitary numbers of METOO:
    fields (Though that could get messy, whats to stop Linus getting bombed
    with a zillion additions from people who just want to get their
    name in a kernel tarball for free). One way could be approval from
    the actual maintainer "Yes, he's sent lots of patches, add him to

    It does seem a little messy having them scattered all over the tree
    too. Extending top-level MAINTAINERS to add necessary fields could
    also be done I suppose.
