Alex' initial gitdm effort, as I understood it, was not meant to cover all history from 2007 or so, but just to give reasonable statistics for 2018 (amd future years).

In that light, .mailmap and gitdm aliases do not need to be equivalent.

But perhaps Alex would now want gitdm to be used for all QEMU history? Is this desirable?
