    I don't like reading annotated email names myself.

    As the coverage of file patterns in MAINTAINERS is
    now pretty good, the --git results are less useful.

    I'd much rather turn off --git as a default, or change
    get_maintainers to add git signers only when there's no
    specifically listed maintainer for a particular file.
