    Add callout for GITLAB_ROOT_EMAIL environment variable · e5ddd238
    Andrew Evans authored and Robert Marshall's avatar Robert Marshall committed
    Admins can override the initial, randomly-generated email[1] address for
    the `root` account by specifying an environment variable. This adds a
    note in the installation docs calling this out. Unlike the
    `GITLAB_ROOT_PASSWORD` env var, this cannot be set via `gitlab.rb` or
    the associated env var.
