addresses.pl - helper script to map tester addresses to real people.
perl addresses.pl --config|c=<file> \ [--address|a=<file>] \ [--mailrc|m=<file>] \ [--check=<file>] \ [--month=<string>] [--match] [--sort]
Using the cpanstats database, the latest 01mailrc.txt file and the addresses file, the script tries to match unmatched tester addresses to either a cpan author or an already known tester.
For the remaining addresses, an attempt at pattern matching is made to try and identify similar addresses in the hope they can be manually identified.
Loads all the data files with addresses against we can match, then load all the addresses listed in the DB that we need to match against.
