brian,

sorry to break you there. I was the author of the patch Junio found, organizing
the .mailmap file was one of my starter contributions. I recall asking all the
people if they were ok with it their names combined in different spellings
94b410bba86 (.mailmap: Map email addresses to names, 2013-07-12)
f4f49e2258a (.mailmap: Combine more (email, name) to individual
persons, 2013-07-14)
and I vaguley recall asking you about capitalization of your name there
and you preferred the lower case name, but apparently I never asked you
about the preferred email address.

Sorry and thanks for fixing,
Stefan
