There is no email address associated with any Subversion commit.
If you want your commits to be attributed to two different addresses
in the git conversion, you need to tell me how to specify two
different selection sets so I can write assign statements and two
trivial "authors read" commands affecting them only.
In the lift file it's going to look something like this:
<m32c> authors read <<EOF
dj = DJ Delorie <email@example.com>
<dgjpp> authors read <<EOF
dj = DJ Delorie <firstname.lastname@example.org>
assuming that the names m32c and dgjpp have been properly bound.
I recommend against this, but policy decisions are not mine to make.
