But even if adopted and up to date, it doesn't means that's the correct way of 
dealing with upstream. Many addresses will be of former developers, and in 
most situations it will not be the best way to contact upstream. Some will 
want a mail to a specific mailing list, some other to open an issue in their 
bugtracker, ...

So let me suggest against getting that info from there.
