To me, merging is my highest priority. I suspect that once I have a tree
from you (or anybody else) that I actually _test_ merging with, I'll be
motivated as hell to make sure that my plumbing actually works.
After all, it's not just you who want to have to avoid the pain of
merging: it's definitely in my own best interests to make merging as
easy as possible. You're _the_ most obvious initial candidate, because
your merges almost never have any conflicts at all, even on a file level
(much less within a file).

That's fine. Out short-logs have always tried to have just the real name
in them, and I do want an email-like thing for tracking the developer, but
yes, if you remove the email, that's fine. It should be easy enough to do
with a simple
And if you replace "author" with "From:" and do the date conversion, it
might look more natural.
