The devil is in the details. One detail that is interesting in 2014 is
"Can the Ohloh crawler see your alias table?".

This stands in for a larger question about how, if you suppose that a
trust/reputation identity consists of multiple aliases, that equivalence
is represented. 

With a little work - specifically, these commands:

=C filter --replace /develoeprs/developers/g
=C filter --replace /=Constantin/Constantin/g
=C filter --replace /Johan Bockgard/Johan Bockgård/g
=C filter --replace /Adam Sjogren/Adam Sjøgren/g

=C filter --replace /jhd <address@hidden>/Jan Djärv <address@hidden>/g
=C filter --replace /Yair F <address@hidden>/Yair Friedman <address@hidden>/

...we get to postpone having to deal with that question.
