Thanks for this information. Unfortunately, the 'USER_EMAIL'
environment variable does not seem to be used by the standard
post-receive hooks (i.e. the one that is shipped with git in contrib).
I've found a workaround that consists of re-setting the
hooks.envelopesender option upon each push. For me, the following
post-receive works fine:


 git config hooks.envelopesender $(git log -1 --pretty=format:%ae
 . /usr/share/doc/git-core/contrib/hooks/post-receive-email
