What Simon said is correct.
We would prefer that contributors use their company affiliated email for committing. However, if there is a need for a webkit.org email (some people don't have access to their work email when not in the office, for example), please email me with your request for an @webkit.org email with the username you would like and where you would like it to be forwarded.
A further note is, if you are given a @webkit.org email and have a company affiliation, the company affiliated email should be used for committing, the @webkit.org email is meant for mailing lists.

>> A little follow-up: when I got my SVN account and credentials earlier this year as a committer, I expected to be given or at least asked if I wanted a webkit.org address, to which I would have said yes. However, I wasn't asked and the credentials went through with my company address. As my company is basically just me, I would prefer to use a webkit.org address in order to identify better with the community as such. So I'm just now following up on this inquiry about how to get a "community" address.

>> How does a committer/reviewer obtain a webkit.org address? I notice that the majority of existing committers and reviewers have either a webkit.org or a chromium.org address listed in contributors.json. I think it an important part of being part of the WK community to be able to identify oneself as being in that community, and having a usable webkit.org address seems a good way to effect that.
