It's not so much minimising maintainers per se that I'm concerned about
as ensuring that people doing general cleanup work don't end up getting
CCed on lots of random stuff, partly for their benefit and partly to
make get_maintainers easier to use.

A combination of patches I'm working on and source files in subsystems I
maintain (basically, stuff where I know off the top of my head who
should turn up). The noticable issues are things like Jean Delvare
turning up for sound/soc/codecs/tlv320aic3x.c as a result of kernel wide
API update work he was doing - by tweaking the percentage I was able to
get the output to exclude people who I know have done non-specific
cleanup work.
