Another consideration in favor of using @fedoraproject.org emails is if
you use real emails, they will be used for old commits, even when that's
not historically accurate.

We went with @src.gnome.org addresses for the GNOME git conversion
because we didn't want, say, 5 years of work someone did at company A
show up as commits from user companyb com because that's where they work
now.

(We actually did something a little fancier at that - if the log message
for the CVS/SVN commit contained something that looked like a ChangeLog
entry with an obvious email address, then we used that as the Author and
the @src.gnome.org only as the Committer. If we couldn't determine a
plausible Author, then we used the @src.gnome.org address for both.)
