   Say, why are you guys still emphasizing fuddy duddy mail addresses
   when like for 10 years now we can go to the person's web page,
   which of course will mention his mail address.

I can think of several reasons, here are a few:

  1) Not everyone has a web page

  2) Just because you have a web page doesn't mean that the email
     address will be easy to find, if it is there at all.

  3) You might want to send the person who made the change an email
     while being offline (and putting the mail in a queue).  Since the
     address is on an web page you cannot check what the address it,
     thus you cannot write the email.

  4) ChangeLog's are not peronal adds.

In short, if you want to know personal details about someone, use
