This is good because now we can specify the address only in one place in $HOME/.gitconfig and change it easily.

Specify the envelope sender used to send the emails.
This is useful if your default address is not the address that is
- subscribed to a list. If you use the sendmail binary, you must have
- suitable privileges for the -f parameter. Default is the value of
- the 'sendemail.envelopesender' configuration variable; if that is
+ subscribed to a list. In order to use the 'From' address, set the
+ value to "auto". If you use the sendmail binary, you must have
+ suitable privileges for the -f parameter. Default is the value of the
+ 'sendemail.envelopesender' configuration variable; if that is
unspecified, choosing the envelope sender is left to your MTA.
