Generally, this is a good idea to include people who are involved in a
particular component development to the CC list. You could check the
committer field of git log --pretty=full to grab a list of involved

And even with filled CC, a patch can be overlooked. A month ago I
tried to raise a discussion on IRC about a good practice on how to
draw some attention to submitted patches. After that discussion I
started thinking that most devs are Ok if a submitter "pings" them
once a week. So just reply to your initial submission with a "gentle
ping" to bump your patch in the list.
