* "When metadata.xml lists a single maintainer or herd, then you assign
the bug to that maintainer or herd. When the file lists multiple
entries, then you assign the bug to the first maintainer, and CC the
other maintainer(s) and herd(s). If you find that metadata.xml lists
inappropriate and/or confusing contact information, then make a note
of that in a comment on the bug report and assign/CC the bug report as
optimal as possible."
