Why does anyone need to search for an "author". This is an
opensource project where the whole community is responsible.
We actively discourage personal contact of the committers.
We also encourage all communications to be on-list so that
everyone can hear the discussions, participate, learn, and help.
Discussions that are taken off-list into personal groups,
detract from the opensource way.
