Not really.
You need to add --norolestats on the get_maintainer command line

git send-email expects bare email addresses, not ones annotated
with additional content.


For instance:

$ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl -f lib/vsprintf.c
Petr Mladek <pmladek@suse.com> (maintainer:VSPRINTF)
Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org> (maintainer:VSPRINTF)
Sergey Senozhatsky <sergey.senozhatsky@gmail.com> (maintainer:VSPRINTF)
Andy Shevchenko <andriy.shevchenko@linux.intel.com> (reviewer:VSPRINTF)
Rasmus Villemoes <linux@rasmusvillemoes.dk> (reviewer:VSPRINTF)
linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org (open list)

vs:

$ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl -f --norolestats lib/vsprintf.c
Petr Mladek <pmladek@suse.com>
Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org>
Sergey Senozhatsky <sergey.senozhatsky@gmail.com>
Andy Shevchenko <andriy.shevchenko@linux.intel.com>
Rasmus Villemoes <linux@rasmusvillemoes.dk>
linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org
