I spent a good amount of time yesterday figuring out the correct workflow
to submit a change to gitk.  As I understand it, gitk (and I think git-gui)
are maintained upstream of git, and patches should be sent to the git email
list against the upstream repo.  I think a top-level MAINTAINERS file would 
help new contributers like me get orientated, especially in the cases of these
upstream projects that require a somewhat non-standard workflow

I also added some additional clarifications to SubmittingPatches that 
clarifies the additional steps required to submit patches against the guis.

Please double check that I've got the correct email addresses and canonical

I'm guessing there are additional Maintainers who should be added to the 
MAINTAINERS file, I just haven't followed to email list closely enough to
know all the formal/informal workflows that should be observed.

  Add top-level maintainers file with email/canonical repository
  Provide better guidance for submitting patches against git-gui, gitk
