Subject RE: Getting username from full name

If manual searching is intended, I think it is sometimes easier simply to do a web page search
in the browser using
<http://people.apache.org/committer-index.html>.  To shorten the search, it is handy
to choose the part of the known name that is most-likely to not have many collisions.  (This
might work for HTML scraping too.)

PS: In checking on e-mails committers use other than their @apache.org accounts, there is
*some* help in the private page,
<https://id.apache.org/info/MailAlias.txt> (ASF logon required).  That also identifies
ASF Members.

1. Be careful to use only the public name", never the legal name (icla name).

2. Obviously there may be >1 answer, code for that.

3.  iclas.txt 'public name' column, or 
   ldapsearch cn='Daniel Shahaf' uid
