It is not uncommon for people to change their name or e-mail address.
To facilitate this, Git provides support for the `.mailmap` file,
which contains a list of identities and previously used e-mail
addresses that are associated with that identity.

Unfortunately, while Git's support for the `.mailmap` file is generally
excellent, I recently discovered that `git log` does not treat the
mail map file the same as the other tools, instead requiring an
explicit flag to use the mailmap file.

I believe this is an unfortunate flaw, as the mailmap file should
ideally contain the most current known contact information for a
contributor, allowing anyone to contact the contributor about their
patches in the future.

New in version 2:
- The `--no-use-mailmap` option, which complements `--use-mailmap`.
- Tests for `--no-use-mailmap`.

Ariadne Conill (3):
  log: use mailmap by default
  log: add --no-use-mailmap option to complement --use-mailmap option
  tests: add test for git log --no-use-mailmap

The `git log` command shows the author and committer name recorded in
the git repository itself, while other commands respect `.mailmap`
by default.  I believe this is a bad design: it causes log entries to
reflect inaccurate information: anyone who changes their name or
e-mail address will not have that change (recorded in mailmap file)
reflected when using `git log` by default.

Anyone who explicitly wants the current behaviour can clearly request
it by setting the `log.mailmap` setting to `false` in their
`.gitconfig` file.

When mailmap is enabled by default or by configuration, it may be
useful to override the default behaviour.  Previously, it was
possible to enable the mailmap feature when it was disabled by
default or in the configuration, but it was not possible to disable
the mailmap feature when it was enabled by default or by the
configuration.

The --no-use-mailmap option equalizes this by allowing the user to
explicitly enable or disable the mailmap feature according to their
requirements.

In order to prove that the --no-use-mailmap option works as expected,
we add a test for it which runs with -Dlog.mailmap=true to ensure that
the option successfully negates the configured default.

Indeed, it is not.  I thought I caught that when proofreading the
commit message.  Will resolve in v3.

Thanks for the review!

This works already. OPT_BOOL automatically handles the negation. You
just have to add "[no-]" to the documentation of --use-mailmap.

Aha.  I was expecting it to behave like typical getopt_long() parsing,
where you have to handle this yourself.  No problem.  I'll clean that
up!  Thanks for the tip.
