You'd be forgiven. There are some developers that are ok to go read
the thread on something like lore if they are cc'd only a subset and
some that require the whole thread copied to them. Perhaps we need an
entry in MAINTAINERS that makes this preference discoverable? To date
I have been manually keeping track of those who want full threads and
those that would prefer to just be cc'd on the cover letter and the
one patch that directly affects their maintenance area.

Certainly blindly cc'ing everyone recommended by
scripts/get_maintainers.pl is overkill, but finding that subset is a
bit of an art.
