Exactly. Mails Cc-ed to me get treated almost equally to all other
xen-devel traffic, whereas mails directed at me mean to me that
a response or other kind of action is expected. Basically the
usual (common sense?) email rules...

So maybe I was too strict about the maintainer part - I don't mind
being sent mails to me that fall under the areas I'm maintainer of,
since there I'm obviously requested to take some sort of action.
But in the case here I certainly feel it was wrong to send the
whole series _to_ everyone.

Yes, I think we should.
