I was specifically thinking of a way to stay in touch with core devs, or 
more specifically a way to send them email. In the past, before we moved 
to github, I took it upon myself to find email addresses (current or 
not) for all core devs, and I gave up without much success.

I agree that we could probably come up with a list of names for people 
who have been given the "core dev" status.

Agreed. Again, this was in the (poorly conveyed) context of getting 
email addresses for them, or at least being able to contact them.
