Add CODEOWNERS file to help automate reviews. #6320
Documentation from GitHub: https://help.github.com/articles/about-codeowners/
I'd like to see GitHub help us keep organized. This new-ish feature will automatically request review from a given team if the files touched match anything declared in the CODEOWNERS file. Instead of a user having to /cc an affinity team, we should declaratively state who owns what and have GitHub require our review.
This is also an exercise in logically splitting up the codebase. The build team is pretty overloaded it looks like -- can we split anything out?
