Did you mean "v2.10.0..master" or did you really mean this covers
authors recorded up to v2.10.0?  Judging from the cover letter, I
think you meant the former.

Can you say a bit more about how one among multiple addresses for
each person was chosen in the log message?  E.g. "After asking each
author which one is the preferred one", "Picked the one with the
most recent committer timestamps", "There were two for each but one
of them were bouncing", etc.

It is a bit surprising that we can take an entry without SP in
between two addresses and still behave sensibley, but it probably
makes more sense to add one just to look similar to other entries.

Thanks for working on this.
