    mbox: Use the 'From' header from the incoming email · 63b2762b
    Arkadiusz Hiler authored
    Currently all the patchwork-generated mboxes uses the name and email
    address extracted from the last patch that person sent. This is strange
    behaviour that leads to problem when a users puts additional information
    (e.g. sponsor) in the header or has changed their legal name.
    
    There's no silver bullet to address all the possible scenarios, and this
    behaviour causes a lot of confusion.
    
    Luckily we store the vanilla email headers the patch was sent out with
    in patch.headers. We can use that to stop the guess game and let the
    people to control how they are called for every patch.
