Is it possible to use git-imerge’s rebase-with-history to address this?  There are a number of forks of the GitHub GNUstep repos and it would be a shame to break all of them.  The old email addresses have been public in the github mirror for a long time, so it’s not really a privacy issue to keep them for a while.

I was going to write a tool to create git replace refs or grafts based on commit descriptions. If there is an easier way to do this, I'm all for it :)

When it comes to email addresses, they are mostly collected from the change log file so I don't see this as a privacy issue. They have not otherwise really been on GitHub in the commit headers.
