me. I took issue with the MAINTAINERS file when Eric brought it up
originally. However, I don't think drastic measures need to be taken.
I have seen a lot of ideas, including Meta-data in the kernel source.

What I think we need is the simple solution: find a maintainer for the
file, cleanup the current cruft and misinformation, and then actively
work to keep the file current. I am willing to be this maintainer.

I am not a major "maintainer" in the kernel, but I have and do
contribute. Thus I think this is a good task for me. I am willing and
wanting to do this. Comments?
