If people prefer to use addresses, that's a small matter of 
adjusting the postprocessing of the author map from the gcc-conversion 
repository to replace the addresses there with while 
keeping the names from that author map.  (The postprocessing is needed 
anyway for this conversion because cvs-fast-export uses a more restricted 
author map syntax than reposurgeon does.  Because there is no ChangeLog in 
wwwdocs, more sophisticated systems for identifying the relevant email 
address for each commit from the ChangeLog aren't practical the same way 
they are for the main GCC repository.)
