I don't actually. It shows a central MAINTAINERS file is the wrong
approach; just that 500+ patches to the same file were needed shows
that.

The maintainer info should be in the source file itself! That's the only
reasonable way to keep it updated; now I'm all for having it machine
parsable so that tools can use it, but it still really should be in the
code itself, not in some central file that will always just go out of
data, and will be a huge source of needless patch conflicts.
