I attempted to contact all users with old zsh.org mail aliases to ensure
we have up-to-date forwarding addresses and to remove those where we
don't. But this wasn't possible in all cases.

When checking the files in git for references to lapsed addresses, most
cases are in files like CONTRIBUTORS and the ChangeLogs which I would
consider to be historical records and so old addresses should remain
untouched.

However, the FAQ references pf@zsh.org when mentioning Paul Falstad and
names Karsten Thygesen for list matters which hasn't been relevant since
before the previous list migration from sunsite.dk. The same wording
from the FAQ is repeated at the top of CONTRIBUTORS and I'm inclined to
make an exception for that file in this one case and also remove the pf
alias from there. That file hasn't been updated in a while and could
perhaps be condensed somewhat unless the old parts should remain for
perpetuity.

Fortunately, we've mostly used generic role based aliases like
listmaster.

Oliver
