Mail addresses in documentation are converted into mailto: hyperlinks in the HTML output and footnotes in man pages. This isn't desirable for cases where the address is used as an example and is not valid.
Particularly annoying is the example "jane@laptop.(none)" which appears in git-shortlog(1) as "jane@laptop.(none)", with note 1 saying: 1. jane@laptop mailto:jane@laptop Fix this by quoting example mail addresses with "$$", preventing Asciidoc from processing them. In the case of mailmap.txt, render the address monospaced so that it matches the block examples surrounding that paragraph. Signed-off-by: John Keeping <j...@keeping.me.uk> --- I can't see any other uses of the "$$" quote in the documentation, so it's probably worth noting that I've tested this with Asciidoc 8.6.8, although I can't see anything in the changelog to indicate that Asciidoc's treatment of it has changed recently.
