      Description

      I realize mapping git author/commit users back to Jenkin's users is pain, but perhaps it could be done a little better.

      Some ideas:

      • Try looking up a user's email and comparing that.
      • Using the user portion from the email (e.g. someuser@example.com becomes someuser).
      • Looking up the user's email in LDAP, if LDAP is being used.

      The last would be ideal for us.

      Ciao!
