My recollection is that the get_maintainer script
cannot parse M: lines with multiple entries with
periods without the quotes.

M: First I. Last <fil@foo.bar>, Last.I.First <lif@foo.bar>

fails and

M: "First I. Last" <fil@foo.bar>, "Last.I.First" <lif@foo.bar>

succeeds.

You are welcome to improve the parsing in that routine.
