    FWIW, I suspect that we are looking at that from the wrong POV. If
    that's about "who ought to be Cc'd on the issues dealing with <list
    of pathnames>", why does it have to be tied to "who is maintainer for
    <pathname>"?

    I'm not suggesting something like fs.ext2@kernel.org with something
    like majordomo allowing to add yourself to those, but something less
    extreme in that direction might be worth thinking about... Hell,
    even simple
    $ finger fs/minix/dir.c@cc.kernel.org
    with majordomo-like interface for adding yourself to such lists
    might solve most of those problems...
