Would it be possible to change the email sending postcommit hook so that
the emails it sends contain the committer name in the From: header,
instead of having only a laconic and non-informative git at videolan.org ?
(so that it looks a bit more like what subversion used to send us)

Also it may be good to remove the 'commit:' in the subject of those
emails at the same time, to leave more space to the useful informations.

Oh, and thanks a lot for all the work you put in this conversion !
It is *very* much appreciated.
