Oh, yes, I've been in the process of gradually phasing out my gmail
accounts for a while, but email servers are complicated, so in the
meanwhile, my custom email only redirects to the gmail
addresses. I think I've added and confirmed all addresses my Identity
that the wiki account could have been connected to. Let me know if I
need to do anything else to help merge the accounts.
Thanks,~ Andrew Toskin
