Just as a hint - the Linux kernel has a pretty good grasp on this topic
with the MAINTAINERS[1] file.  There's a script alongside it[2] which
can find maintainers even for a presented patch.  That helps _a lot_ to
automatically find the responsible people.

Of course in Emacs we could integrate that better, but comparable
functionality would be nice to have ;)



There are two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation,
naming things, and off-by-one errors.
