It's my understanding there is no direct relationship between WikiName
and Email Aliases.
In the past, we allowed Firstname.Lastname(a)fedoraproject.org for Email
Aliases based on your Fedora Account but they didn't work well since
many of us didn't use proper full name (Firstname Lastname) in their
Fedora Account and some of us have same name.
Sorry ambassadors but there's technical reasons we can't keep
firstname.lastname and we're not going to manually maintain a list for
everyone forever. I'm open to suggestions but unless you guys can come
up with a REALLY good reason you can't just use
username(a)fedoraproject.org they're gone. We can always change your
username to something more respectable but thats the only option I see.
Sorry for the inconvenience, I know this sucks. No one wanted to get
rid of firstname.lastname, but we had to.
