IMO it would be the initiator of the thread.  They're the ones that
asked for comments/suggestions on an idea, so they're the ones that
should be following the thread most closely.  If you take the recent
"bootscript RFC" thread it would have been the maintainers that would
monitor the thread and summarize it once they're satisfied with the
outcomes.  In that particular case I'd think the "summary" message would
simply say something like "See the bootscript dev plan at [url]".
