I agree Cc: maintainers should be the default / recommended way of
sending patches.

Just to convince myself, adding some meson skeleton for a "plop"
library, adding an entry in the release notes and hooking in
$ git show --stat
 doc/guides/rel_notes/release_23_11.rst | 4 ++++
 lib/meson.build                        | 1 +
 lib/plop/meson.build                   | 2 ++

$ ./devtools/get-maintainer.sh 0001-new-awesome-library.patch

In this case, it translates to an empty To: list if you follow the
example command line:
   git send-email --to-cmd ./devtools/get-maintainer.sh --cc
dev@dpdk.org 000*.patch

We could add a default list of recipients if no maintainer is found by
the script.
And the next question is who should be in that list..
