For a while, address@hidden was used as From address in CVS log
mails. This is the correct thing to do.

But now, the user specified address is used again. Can this be changed back?
The current behaviour doesn't work with SPF and other spam fighting
mechanisms, because you're simply forging the From address. Your mail server
isn't authorized to send mails on behalf of /other/ domains, and they will be
rejected by the receiving mailserver.
