The reason is that the 'email' field of the <author> tag is not set.
Instead I see that in recent WWN issues (since issue 161) there is a
contact field with a web site URL. I guess the goal is to foil spammers
so I should not send a patch to add the email field<g>.

So the problem is that include/wwn.php does not support the 'contact'

        $wwn_vars = array(
            'author' => $html->ahref($this->author, 'mailto:'.$this->email),

Jeremy, is it hard to modify wwn.php so that it uses the email field if
present (for old issues), and uses the contact field otherwise.
Would this work? (note that I don't know anything about PHP):

            'author' => $html->ahref($this->author,
                                     (isset($this->email) ?
                                      'mailto:'.$this->email :

Maybe we should even check if contact is set too:

            'author' => (isset($this->email) || isset($this->contact) ?
                                      (isset($this->email) ?
                                       'mailto:'.$this->email :
                                     ) :

    I haven't lost my mind, it's backed up on tape around here somewhere...
