My author list only contains the actual user names recorded in the
history.  There are 8 current members at Savannah that never committed
to CVS, and I doesn't look like the 9 authors from your list have any
commits either.

I generally used the newest mail address that I could find in the change
logs (some are even less modern than yours :-) ).  But I don't care
much, either.

The changes from "law" are only on config.sub/config.guess, which were
symlinked to shared RCS files at this time, so there are no change log
entries that belong to any of his commits.  I'm pretty sure he is the
same law who is the current owner of law @fencepost.

"mycroft" is similar, except that there is no such account @fencepost
any more.  There are more such differences from the
config.guess/config.sub accounts.

I think you are wrong about uid65624: from looking at the commit log
style it looks more like André committed on Benjamin's behalf (and I
don't think Benjamin ever had commit access).
