Based on the discussion which followed I think we now have a rough
consensus that we want to do this.

So we can now *gently* encourage submitters to add CCs based on the
contents of the MAINTAINERS file when replying to patches etc.

I have updated the guide at
with some the request to do this and information on how to achieve it
with hg email.

I went to do it for git too
but it seems it already recommends CCing the maintainer! I tightened up
the wording to make it more than a suggestion and to keep it inline with
the hg wording.

I'm not sure if there is anywhere else to update. Let me know if you
think of somewhere (or fix it yourself!)
