    Prefer EMAIL to username@hostname.

    kraai authored gitster committed
    The environment variable $EMAIL gives a better default of user's
    preferred e-mail address than the hardcoded "username@hostname",
    as it is understood by many existing programs.
    We still honor GIT_*_EMAIL environment variables and
    configuration variable give them higher precedence, so that the
    user can override $EMAIL or "username@hostname", as they are
    likely to be more specific to the context of working on a
    particular project.
