The mailmap file works on the git log, and thus tools using it: e.g.

Probably yes, as there are two patches by him in the Linux kernel:

| Thomas Körper (2):

| can: esd_usb2: Fix sparse warnings

I'll update this patch.

For co-authorship, use the Co-developed-by tag, that was recently added:

Speaking of that patch. Can you please create an entry in the
MAINTAINERS file, too? I suggest to add yourself as M: and the
socketcan@e.u as R:. The change in the MAINTAINERS file will be a second
patch in that series. Just include it the next iteration of that series.

working. :D
