Ability to hide User's Email Address from GitLab UI
As initially proposed in Issue #794, I would like the ability to hide my user's email address in the GitLab Web UI (make my email address "private"). This is specifically to reduce the likelihood that my email address will be scraped off of public pages and to reduce the likelihood that it will be shared with strangers.
Currently, email addresses can be publicly revealed inside the GitLab UI. For example:
- When viewing a public commit in the GitLab Web UI, the user associated with the commit is tagged. Hovering over that user's name reveals the user's email address in a tooltip.
I think issue #43521 (closed) is a better solution to the problem expressed here (keeping email address info private). Personally, I would close this issue in favor of that one and recommend that people interested in this issue support that one instead. But, given that this issue has garnered some interest (and is a different proposal), I'll leave this open.
