I eg. obfuscate this one because /me hates spam. It's so easily
accessable for email harvester.

my 2c. I do like the idea in genral though, to have amaintainer tag.
With a growing number of developers and probably packages we might end
up having architecture bound maintainers and this must be reflected in
the maintainer tag. All my 64bit packages are build by Andy and Eric,
 because I dun have a 64bit machine. I'm still officailly the maintainer
 but for blender it's mainly Andy wrestling with it.
