I read, from your 'I intend to contact ... individiually', that you would have already sent such private inquiries. I was reviewing my mailbox for possible "fell into cracks" topics, and found that nothing seems to have happened since then. I guessed that since they you may already have received responses to allow us to move forward with this series, hence my "ping". I do not see a need for "are you still at this address?" to be made in public. It is fine and probably even preferrable to see a single patch that corrects multiple .mailmap entries, with a proposed log message that says "I've contacted everybody whose address is affected by this change and made sure the replacement address is correct." We trust you ;-) Of course, you may want to Bcc: such a patch to them to give them another chance to double-check as a courtesy.
