Cool. Would you consider enabling this on kernel.org? I'll probably
merge it in a few days (still working out some bugs). Seems like the
kind of thing that might give cgit a lot of positive attention...

We already support module-link and repo.module-link for making
clickable submodules. I don't see why we wouldn't be able to apply the
same idiom to a email-link and repo.email-link setting. I'll look into
this. I suppose a default setting, or maybe just a suggested setting
in the documentation, would be to issue a search for that email. But
this could then be used to instead link out to your upcoming web of
trust platform. How does this sound?
