There's that file, right in the root of the source tree.  Called "MAINTAINERS",
in all-caps...  Could have something to do with locating maintainers, could it not?

Sigh...   You really don't seem to appreciate just how deep a septic
tank you've jumped into with your combination of "it should be opt-out"
and "but unsubscribing takes just a minute, what are you unhappy about?!?"

Maybe you are not using email a lot, but for just about everyone who does...
We have heard that.  Many, many times.  From many sources - spammers,
"legitimate" companies' marketing departments, etc.

And you keep moving along the same track - the usual reaction of some
company after having pulled back a bloody stump and enjoyed the pile of
explanations of the reasons why opt-out is *NOT* *ACCEPTABLE*, *EVER*
is along the lines of "OK, we'll just spam everyone in our database once
and ask them to opt-in - that must be OK, right?"
