However, it increases the difference to contrib/gitdm/aliases.  I'm just
as guilty; my recent "[PATCH 2/2] contrib/gitdm: Add address@hidden
to group-map-redhat" updates only that. and not .mailmap.

Perhaps we want to keep the two in sync manually.  We should then add
suitable comments to each file.

Could we instead teach gitdm to use .mailmap, and ditch

aliases' format is documented in gitdm's README.  Each line maps a
non-canonical e-mail address to a canonical one.

.mailmap's format is documented in git-shortlog(1).  It can do a bit
more.  Even the common part differs: it has two addresses in different
order *boggle*.
