Richard,

Thanks for the offer, but no need.  Just wanted to confirm with some
detail that I reviewed aspects of the svn-git conversion and LGTM.

BTW, I too saw the issue (in 14 out of 261 master commits) reported by
Andrew where (in my case) "ljrittle@gcc.gnu.org" was used in Author
line(s) rather than the expected e-mail.  In every one of my cases, it
appears because no exact Changelog text was related to the commit
rather than, as in Andrew's analysis of case mismatches.

Regards,
Loren
