[PATCH v2 0/1] Add add-maintainer.py script

From: Guru Das Srinagesh
Date: Thu Aug 03 2023 - 04:27:54 EST

When pushing patches to upstream, the `get_maintainer.pl` script is used to
determine whom to send the patches to. Instead of having to manually process
the output of the script, add a wrapper script to do that for you.

The add-maintainer.py script adds maintainers (and mailing lists) to a patch,
editing it in-place.

Thanks to Bjorn for being a sounding board to this idea and for his valuable

Please try out this script with `--verbosity debug` for verifying that it's
doing "the right thing". I've tested this with a patch series from various
subsystems to ensure variety of maintainers and lists output and found it to be
doing what it is supposed to do.

I referred to the following links during development of this script:
- https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4427542/how-to-do-sed-like-text-replace-with-python
- https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4146009/python-get-list-indexes-using-regular-expression
- https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10507230/insert-line-at-middle-of-file-with-python

v1 -> v2:
- Added set-union logic based on Pavan's comments [1] and Bjorn's early suggestion
- Expanded audience and added more mailing lists to get more review comments and feedback
