    Remove Andrew Morton's email addresses.
    There is still one akpm@osdl.org living in linux-2.6.27/Documentation/zh_CN/SubmittingDrivers
    but I am not sure how not to break this file. Li Yang CC'ed for this reason.

    Should we think about systematically removing maintainers' email addresses from the code and documentation ?

    I guess the easiest thing to do is have a Documents/mail_addresses file
    that gets referred to (and updated) as and when.

    I guess the only case where this falls down is if we have identically
    named maintainers, either now or in the future?

    In that case how do we tell them apart, apart from e-mail address a la
    'Andrew Morton '?

    We'll probably have to use those poor souls' middle names. Some are
    luckier than others when it comes to that.

    We have two dupes now. One is the Dan Williamses and I forget the

    We don't even seem to be able to use last names to tell people apart right
    now... it's amazing how many people think I should be able to do something
