The intent is a handbook for being a maintainer. However, in the
process of describing how a given sub-system is maintained one also
needs to describe the local rules. So contributors should be able to
glean what matters to a sub-system from a description of how that
sub-system is maintained. In other words the direct audience is
maintainers, but it also hopefully makes the process more transparent
for contributors.
