The sheepdog mailing list is setup to stop and queue messages from

are approved, the sender is never added to the whitelist, so every
future mail the same sender continues to get stopped for moderation.

MAINTAINERS entries should be responsive and not uneccessarily block
mails from QEMU contributors, so drop the sheepdog mailing list.

Perhaps the sheepdog list would like to know what we are doing, along with a heads up that their list policy is unfriendly. But I can't be the one to tell them - if I were to add the sheepdog list in cc, I'd get moderated.

It's annoyed me enough times that I agree with the change.
