Please remember any moderated list entries originate here
by using for a proposed patch or discuss
a particular subsystem.

If a moderator of a list decides an email chain about a

likely that moderated list should be removed from MAINTAINERS.

Under what use case would you want to use get_maintainer and
_not_ cc a particular mailing list?
