People working on bugs will need to contact you somehow. The email
address listed as the submitter of the PR is the only way they have.
Quite often, if a followup to the problem report bounces, people with
access to the bugs database will close the PR with a message similar to:
"Submitter address bounces."
So you have to use a real email address there. If you don't want your
main email address to be visible there, can you send a "public email"
address to me? I'll edit the problem report text and change the email
address currently displayed to whatever (valid) address you want.
