But the mail is not addressed to maintainers.

Let me phrase the problem differently: whom do you expect to act on the
email reminder?

It's not realistic to expect that all developers on this list open the
attached Excel sheet just to check whether there is anything that they
need to work on.

That assumes that these maintainers actually read the email, which they
probably don't even if they are active otherwise.

Yes, someone should check. Do we know who that person is, and does he or
she read all of these email status emails?
