	Yeah, I'd like the tooltips to be better too. I think the nice part
about not putting people's email addresses into the commit message is
that it doesn't expose people's email addresses without filtering. I
don't know if loggerhead does filtering on "author" and "committer", but
it *could*, whereas it probably doesn't for commit messages.

Competent, Friendly Bugzilla and Perl Services. Everything Else, too.
