I think there is code deriving version numbers from those strings
somewhere, so you need to adapt this code to the new format or to the
removal of the strings.

Don't know about arafune, kurt, nabe, and uid*.  Probably conversion
artifacts, some of them.  In general, those single-identifier email
addresses sound like the conversion lost some info from the name.

You should have found most of the above on in the
/home/g/gnuorg/copyright.list file.  That's where I looked.  As a
maintainer, you should have an account on that system.

All the best
