Finding our old committers
Hi everyone,

I'm working on the Git migration project, and I need your help!

Unlike SVN which stores commits based on a username, Git stores
a commit attributed to a name + e-mail address. I've made a lot of
progress on figuring these out, but I've gotten the list narrowed down
and I'm getting a little stuck on some of the old accounts that aren't
active anymore.

So I thought I'd ask if people on the list could take a look at my
unknown committers list[0] and see which people they know and can
figure out. I'm finding that lots of people know about one or two of the
people on the list.

If you know the name or the e-mail address of any of the users that
we've got listed there, fill it in. Thanks for any help you can provide!

Wow, I didn't expect such a quick response! Thanks to Niklas, CoE, Andre
Engels, Liangent, Merlijn and all of the other anonymous people who dropped
in. We've already managed to get quite a few of the names filled out.

Thank you thank you!
