How do we weed out dead MAINTAINERS entries?

Automated spambot that runs once a release cycle and reports back to
the list which entries were dead?

I don't need more email. Why can't we just send a patch to MAINTAINERS
dropping the line the first time someone actually notices it?


Could make a bot that just watches from: addresses on the list. If it sees a mail from you within the last release cycle, it assumes you are still alive.

If it doesn't hear from you for an entire release cycle, it sends out a small ping and looks for bounces.

Only once a release would be not more than four times a year, and most active maintainers would never see a single email.

Or, yes, manually when it happens...
