Yes. vger mailing lists drop emails with large to:/cc:

Good to know.

It's generally better to add --nogit --nogit-fallback to
get_maintainer to avoid the git lookup addition of people
that have modified files that aren't listed in MAINTAINERS.
Really? I used them for a previous version of my patch, but Jon (who didn't use that params) complained about too many people not being CCed.

As Jon now applied (whatever branch on...) my patch, I assume that not using those params is better.

After all not using them doesn't enlarge the set of recipients per patch (of mine), but reduces patch size as I group changed files per set of recipients.

You could add a --bcc with those dropped names if you
really want to have those people receive the emails.
