I don't think it's worth the trouble to muck with the commit history though.

I put those usernames in the AUTHORS file because I didn't know what people's full names and emails were. Also, some people might not want their full name in it. Feel free to add yours if you like.
Ok, you don't seem to get it.
If someone doesn't want their full name on their commit, that's tough. From here on out, no more patches without full names on them. If you disagree with this, my delete key is far from worn out...
As for the history, there isn't a single other project on projects.archlinux.org that does not use full names. We've gone through the effort of rebuilding history using full names for every other project we've put up. There is no reason the AUR should be an exception.
Feel free to rebuild if you want, so long as it doesn't break the repo. Will we need to reclone in all places, or will a pull get the fixes?
I admit I don't know enough about how GIT does all its metadata storage to know how it will react to such things being changed.
