    Do you have a useful, trivial or non-trivial algorithm
    to suggest or is that soft commenting? All I'll say is
    AI can be a surprisingly difficult field.

    Then likely there's no actual maintainer for that file.

    Some entries in MAINTAINERS are outdated.
    Validating MAINTAINERS entries is probably best done once.

    I suggest you try that concept out, see what you get, and
    make public the results.
