It's a starting point.

Perhaps "area" is a better concept than "package".  I mean, Ted and
Juanma would probably appreciate being notified on gnutls issues, and
you would like (or "like" :-)) to get bidi notifications.

However, areas that are mostly covered by people who are participating
actively on emacs-devel already don't really need to get these
notifications, since we all read emacs-bugs already, don't we?  :-)

So, while nice, it's probably more useful for packages maintained by
people who don't read these lists regularly.

So, yes, "area".  And I'd suggest a file format like

bidi: Eli Zaretskii <address@hidden>

gnutls: Ted Zlatanov <address@hidden>
 Juanma Barranquero <address@hidden>
