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.
