That doesn't make any sense to me.
Mailing lists _should_ be copied on patch submissions.

And the displayed output of that command-line does not match
the actual behavior.

The command-line is:
$ perl scripts/get_maintainer.pl --separator , --nokeywords --nogit --nogit-fallback --norolestats --nol -f drivers/staging/most/aim-sound/sound.c

And the output shown is:
Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh at linuxfoundation.org>,devel at driverdev.osuosl.org,linux-kernel at vger.kernel.org

That's not what's actually output by that command-line
as it would not show the mailing list.

$ perl scripts/get_maintainer.pl --separator , --nokeywords --nogit --nogit-fallback --norolestats --nol -f drivers/staging/most/aim-sound/sound.c
Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh at linuxfoundation.org>
