Perhaps "parts with sub-maintainers' with their own repositories".

In any case, I think it is probably much better not to add a new
file at the top of the tree only to hold twenty-or-so
lines. Instead, add the contents as a footnote to this file and
refer to it from here.
To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in
the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org
