email addresses can change and be off, the tag in the PKGBUILD rarely
contains the username but the realname is mostly the same, all
provided a new maintainer didn't forget to add his credentials to the
PKGBUILD. So yeah, the information is almost always different to some

But: what must be the same? I realise that it would be nice if it
was the same.
