I noticed many duplicates in email addresses but having the same name by

    # Finding out duplicates by comparing names:
    git shortlog -sne |awk '{ NF--; $1=""; print }' |sort |uniq -d

Most of these entries are most probably the same person, but we cannot be 
sure, as there might be different persons having the same name, then they
are only distinguished by the mail address.

However I suspect most of these to be the same person, having changed 
mail addresses.

Here comes an initial batch of corrections to the mailmap file, which
maps people with email addresses of different capitalization onto
the same entity.
(Example n...@mit.edu is the same as n...@mit.edu)

I intend to contact each of the persons individually and ask whether 
just their mail address changed, or if they are indeed different persons.
