+mailmap.file::
+ The location of an augmenting mailmap file. The default
+ mailmap, located in the root of the repository, is loaded
+ first, then the mailmap file pointed to by this variable.
+ The location of the mailmap file may be in a repository
+ subdirectory, or somewhere outside of the repository itself.
+ See linkgit:git-shortlog[1] and linkgit:git-blame[1].
+
+mailmap.blob::
+ Like `mailmap.file`, but consider the value as a reference to a
+ blob in the repository. If both `mailmap.file` and
+ `mailmap.blob` are given, both are parsed, with entries from
+ `mailmap.file` taking precedence. In a bare repository, this
+ defaults to `HEAD:.mailmap`. In a non-bare repository, it
+ defaults to empty.
