[PATCH 0/1] add author and committer configuration settings

Hi all,

this is my first patch for git, so please be gentle. ;-)

I am in a situation where I need to use different authorship information
for some repositories I commit to.

Git already supports setting different authorship and committer
information with environment variables, but this setting is global so if
you want to change it per repository you need to use a separate tool.

This patch adds support to git config for author.email, author.name,
committer.email and committer.name  settings so this information
can be set per repository. It applies to current master.

Thanks much for your reviews, and I would like to publically thank dscho
from #git-devel for assisting me in preparing this patch.

Also, since I use a screen reader, it would be very helpful if you put
your comments in your replies as close to the affected code as possible,
preferably directly below it.
