thanks for looking into the issue!

Yeah, that looks plausible that the vger-lists are missing.

This list is moderated for non-subscribers, probably that's why.

OK, so I probably got the mail because I was on CC (and not via the
i2c-list). Interestingly, gmane has the patch in the i2c-archive:

Yet, spinics and do not have it. So, it seems gmane has some
extra logic?

I'd wonder. vger should be used to large CC lists.

Ah, didn't know about 'patman', might have a look later. get_maintainer
is nice, yet I usually use it with --no-git to only CC the maintainers,
not the contributors for such kind of cleanups.

Thanks for doing the cleanup :)
