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

Signed-off-by: Philipp Riemer <>
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.
