    Wow, thank you so much for compiling this. Was this automated, or did you manually have to comb through every address? (Or at least, though the addresses that weren't identical to the cpan author addresses?)

    I'm also impressed that you were able to attach my reports to me. I'm guessing it was because they were all from the same domain name. Did you do a whois, or did you connect it through my cpan author page?
    • All the report parsing is automated. However, the address mapping is part script and part manual labour. The script searches through the 01mailrc file for known PAUSE addresses, and through the known mappings and attempts to find matches to domains. Of the rest I lookup peoples domains, sometimes a whois and see whether there are any clues via Google. The manual part usually only happens when I have some free time and feel like wandering around the web.

      In your case, your domain did make it an easy spot :)
