We also have a MAINTAINERS file (in the toplevel dir of the repo) that
should hold useful email addresses for everyone, at any point in time.
Of course sometimes people forget to update it.  It also does not hold
the actual account names, but you can almost always get those from the
checkin to the MAINTAINERS file itself (or correlate with ChangeLogs,
etc.)  Won't that work better than the ML archives?
