#1782: Hide email address in web status
Reporter:  tfogal       |      Owner:
    Type:  enhancement  |     Status:  new
Priority:  major        |  Milestone:  undecided
 Version:  0.8.3p1      |   Keywords:
 When using VCSs that use email addresses for the "change author", such as
 git, the "changed by" line in the web status appears as the author's
 exacty email.  This allows web bots to scrape it, of course.

 It would be nice if buildbot had a notion of "displayed name" versus
 "e-mail I need to use for MailNotifiers".  That way those running a master
 could provide a mapping explicitly, or something like gitpoller could
 automatically set email=author_field,
 displayedname=author_field_before_the_ at _sign.
