Well, "K:	regression" is not a regex, so that's not going to
really help much.

How about something simple like:
	KERNEL REGRESSIONS:
	M:	Thorsten Leemhuis <linux@leemhuis.info>
	L:	regressions@lists.linux.dev
	S:	Supported

That looks a bit more like other entries, has a name and a list and a
state of your status for this work.

Would that work?

thanks,
