I'd argue that the whole point of adding myself as a maintainer is to
take responsibility for managing the project (including issues, PRs,
etc.) myself.
I certainly don't want to receive any additional emails telling me about
things I'm already fully aware of.

Having the ability to receive such reminders may be useful to some, but
I expect this to be an "opt-in" service, not "opt-out".
