Also, the relevant text for how to join is in the 000/XXX message we
send out with every review, that contains the lines:

These patches are sent out with a number of different people on the
Cc: line. If you wish to be a reviewer, please email stable@xxxxxxxxxx
to add your name to the list. If you want to be off the reviewer list,
also email us.
