    git-svn: parse authors file more leniently · f7c6de0e
    Michael J Gruber authored
    Currently, git-svn parses an authors file using the perl regex
    /^(.+?|\(no author\))\s*=\s*(.+?)\s*<(.+)>\s*$/
    in order to extract svn user name, real name and e-mail.
    This does not match an empty e-mail field like "<>". On the other hand,
    the output of an authors-prog is parsed with the perl regex
    in order to extract real name and e-mail.
    So, specifying a trivial file grep such as
    grep "$1" /tmp/authors | head -n 1 | cut -d'=' -f2 | cut -c'2-'
    as the authors prog gives different results compared to specifying
    /tmp/authors as the authors file directly.
    Instead, make git svn uses the perl regex
    /^(.+?|\(no author\))\s*=\s*(.+?)\s*<(.*)>\s*$/
    for parsing the authors file so that the same (slightly more lenient)
    regex is used in both cases.
