    SubjectRe: [GIT PULL] new mailmap file for the linux kernel git repository
    updated mailmap file for LK repository

    The current version of the .mailmap file does only capture a fraction of errors
    and ambiguity when looking at developers emails and names. Hence, this revised
    version tries to address many more names and, as a result, to clarify maintainer
    information. Issues addressed:
    - Typos in names
    - Typos in mails
    - Mapping of ambiguous mail adresses (e.g. {, aa@home.(none),,...} becomes {}) but keeping LKML specific ones
    - Mapping of names to entries with only email information
    - Correct usage of special character (e.g. German umlauts)
    - Harmonization of position and style of last name (no more all-caps names
    like "First LAST" or those of "Last, First")
    - No initials in names if not necessary
    - Conversion of email addresses to lower case

    Finally I am back from my trip through Germany and after attending
    LinuxTag in Berlin last week, reading Documentation/SubmittingPatches,
    and checking other patch submissions, I give this topic finally a new
    try... Hopefully my submission confirms to the LK standards this
    time. I can certify that this contribution was conscientiously created
    in whole by me and therefore added the sign-off message.

    Please pull from

    git:// mailmap-changes

    to get the changes in the attached patch file (since even the
    web-interface of GMail wraps lines) -- or simply inspect/apply that
    file directly.
