Updating your CNCF Developer Affiliation

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation uses gitdm to figue out who is contributing and from where. This is used to generate reports and so forth.

There is a huge text file where they are mapping email addresses used and affiliation. It probably doesn’t hurt to check your entry, for example, here’s mine:

Jorge O. Castro*: jorge.castro!gmail.com
Lemon Ice
Lemon Location City until 2017-05-01
Lemon Travel Smart Vacation Club until 2015-06-01

Whoa? What? This is what a corrected entry looks like, as you can see it takes into account where you used to work for correctness:

Jorge O. Castro*: jorge!heptio.com, jorge!ubuntu.com, jorge.castro!gmail.com
Canonical until 2017-03-31

As an aside this also really makes a nice rolodex for looking up people. :D
