Parsing those files is not workable. As said before, this is too much of
a burden on me to keep on adding 'magic' to somehow parse random text
into gnome userids (theoretically: other sysadmins). Due to various
objections raised in the thread I've come to the conclusion that what
would be ideal (IMO) from an infrastructure standpoint is not possible
in practice without ignoring too many maintainers.
As a result, I will not implement my proposal, nor anything related to
the information which would be in doap, including what I've been doing
manually. This includes e.g. svn-commits-list reply-to updates and
damned-lies&&MAINTAINERS->Mango userid 'sync'.
