Indeed, I see now that for some reason, only the stable/{3.16,3.18,4.4,4.9}
build results get sent to the mailing list by kernelci, while the stable-rc
builds only get sent to a short list of individuals that I happen to be
on. I never noticed this before as I sort them in my inbox according to the
sender address rather than the mailing list.

Clearly those build reports should include either you or the mailing list.

I also see that there are no builds for stable/{4.1,4.11,4.12} and
stable-rc/4.1. This is apparently a result of the kernelci build bot
intentionally only checking specific branches, while some of the
other bots simply build all branches on the trees they watch.

Adding Kevin and info@xxxxxxxxxxxx to Cc, this should be easy
to resolve for future builds.
