You made your email public. Many accounts have no contact information available, so the only way to contact them is to: - open a random bogus ticket and mention their name as @username (but that most likely means sending a "public message") - figure out which repositories they have contributed to, clone the repository and find the email there None of that is really straightforward. And trying to matching a known email to the username is actually worse. When creating pull requests on GitHub (but also for tickets on Trac) we'll need that for both committers and non-committers. Trac has at least the nice auto-completion functionality that GitHub doesn't. It would be nice if "port info" would also print the github usernames of maintainers.
