Gee, who would that be? Why be so indirect?
(Even though you are both the stable and the staging maintainer)

Why don't you just write "How come I didn't get cc'd?"

I'm the closest thing there is to a MAINTAINERS maintainer.
Andrew has taken all the patches I've posted to it except for
the patchset that added file patterns and you're rarely a
path to get things into MAINTAINERS.

$ ./scripts/ -f --rolestats MAINTAINERS
Andrew Morton <akpm@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> (commit_signer:97/515=19%)
Joe Perches <joe@xxxxxxxxxxx> (commit_signer:83/515=16%)
"David S. Miller" <davem@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> (commit_signer:35/515=7%)

And you already had written that you wouldn't take a
similar individual patch.
