In my review of possibly suspect authors I'm concentrating on cases where 
the author name needs review (based on either reposurgeon reporting a 
ChangeLog header it can't parse, or differences in author name from 
Maxim's conversion, as an indication that the choice of name is worthy of 
review), not those where the name is probably OK but it might be possible 
to improve the choice of email address.

Both of those are included in the manual fixups I've done for suspect 
cases (since that conversion was generated).  I've reviewed all the (about 
500) cases of reposurgeon reporting ChangeLog headers it can't parse (with 
a wide range of typos in date formats etc.), other than those Richard set 
up fixes for before I started that review, and all the (about 1200) most 
likely to be significant cases of differences in authors (names) from 
Maxim's conversion (cases where the commit isn't ChangeLog-only or marked 
as a backport, resulting in about 400 author improvements, the rest being 
cases where I thought the author from reposurgeon was the most appropriate 
one; ChangeLog-missing cases had been reviewed earlier).
