Linus used a lot of different per-machine email addresses in
the early days. This means that "git shortlog -nse" does not
aggregate his counts, and he is listed well below where he
should be (8th instead of 3rd).

I recall you considered "email ident from random machine" as a feature
very early on in git's history, but you seem to have settled on using
the linux-foundation address pretty consistently these days. Please let
me know if you object to normalizing your entries in this way.
