This is no hard requirement. However, all your existing commits were
attributed to your @macports.org mail address.

I am only aware of one case where the commit author email address will
be used:

When you close a ticket with "Closes
​https://trac.macports.org/ticket/..."; in a commit message, a comment
will automatically be added to the corresponding ticket. This comment
will be attributed to the author of the commit. By using the same email
address for your commits that is also configured in Trac, you ensure
that these comments will be properly attributed to you.
