In npm when you have an author there's a really nice feature ... namely you 
can add a URL :  

Author: Joe Bloggs <> (URL)

In git you have the same message but without the optional URL at the end

I was wondering how difficult it might be to add such a feature to git 

I asked this on IRC and they said it would be a big change, but that I 
could ask the mailing list for opinions.

I think it would be nice because it would make git more 'social' allowing 
to click through to a user's homepage, so you can see what they are working 
on, give donations, see their friends etc.

Could this be added to a wishlist of features?
