    I merely wanted to get the patterns accepted.

    I thought the P/M: integration was an unnecessary
    complication that would delay pattern acceptance.

    So I use scripts/get_maintainer.pl "as is".
    Suggestions on improvements to the script are
    of course gladly accepted...

    If the script doesn't work well for you, please
    let me know.

    If the P/M: conversion is desired, I've no objection.
    The script would have to change though.

    There are command line options to control email address
    output style:

    For instance:

    $ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl -f Documentation/DocBook/sh.tmpl
    linux-doc@vger.kernel.org
    linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org
    Randy Dunlap <rdunlap@xenotime.net>
    Paul Mundt <lethal@linux-sh.org>

    with option "--no-n" (also "--non") (Do not output "name")

    $ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl --no-n -f Documentation/DocBook/sh.tmpl
    linux-doc@vger.kernel.org
    linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org
    rdunlap@xenotime.net
    lethal@linux-sh.org

    with option "--no-l" (do not output "mailing lists")

    $ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl --no-l -f Documentation/DocBook/sh.tmpl
    Randy Dunlap <rdunlap@xenotime.net>
    Paul Mundt <lethal@linux-sh.org>

    with option "--no-m"
    (do not output "maintainers" , just use git log "by:" signors)

    $ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl --no-m -f Documentation/DocBook/sh.tmpl
    linux-doc@vger.kernel.org
    linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org
    Paul Mundt <lethal@linux-sh.org>

    with option "--no-multiline", the output is on a single line

    $ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl --no-multiline -f Documentation/DocBook/sh.tmpl
    linux-doc@vger.kernel.org, linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org, Randy Dunlap <rdunlap@xenotime.net>, Paul Mundt <lethal@linux-sh.org>

    The entry separator (default ", ") is specified with --separator

    By default, "subscriber-only" mailing lists are
    not output. Use "--l --s" to output lists and
    lists that are "subscriber-only".

    There is a defect in the script right now with
    "subscriber-only" mailing lists. The regex
    check is not broad enough.

    I'll submit a patch for that shortly.

    cheers, Joe
