post-receive-hook: Remove the From field from the generated email header so that the pusher's name is used
Using the name of the committer of the revision at the tip of the updated ref is not sensible. That information is available in the email itself should it be wanted, and by supplying a "From", we were effectively hiding the person who performed the push - which is useful information in itself.
