Is this RFC2822 compliant (https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2822)? Not an
expert of the norm, but my understanding is that you're allowed to use
either "Name <a...@domain.com>" (name-addr) or a...@domain.com
(addr-spec), and that comments are allowed within parenthesis like
"Stable <sta...@vger.kernel.org> (4.8+)".
What is this [4.8+] supposed to mean?
The guilty function is parse_mailboxes in perl/Git.pm. It should be
rather easy to modify it but I need to understand the spec before I can
try to implement anything.
