We basically don't care what the name is. We are only interested in the
LDAP userid. I don't trust a name to be unique, so that is ignored.

We aren't interested in inactive maintainers. So just make sure you
don't list them using E-mail / Userid. This to avoid allowing them to
still approve SVN accounts.

Probably ok if every '@' and '.' in the email address is replaced by a
space. The intention is to find the userid in LDAP. The email address is
already in LDAP (although likely some old unused one as you currently
cannot update that yourself).

Note: Do not protect uid gnome org or uid svn gnome org this way.
Although as soon as you list the Userid, the script shouldn't care
