Hi,
Whenever I use "git format-patch" to create a patch to bleadperl, the patch
file includes an email address (sisyphus1@optusnet.com.au) that will become
obsolete in a couple of weeks time.
Hence, if someone applies the patch then the git log will specify that
address:

commit a9dc86432e18808d046a28d7ad699e5c59bcc75a
Author: sisyphus <sisyphus1@optusnet.com.au>
......

From where does git grab that email address ? And how do I change it for
future patches ?
(I mostly use Cygwin's git on Windows 7.)

Also, I see that the AUTHORS file is showing the same soon-to-be-obsolete
address. How do I get that changed ?

My preferred address for any public listing is sisyphus@cpan.org, as that
will always point to my actual address.

Cheers,
Rob
