Use default account email for gravatar on anonymized GitHub emails
No votes left
When using GitHub anonymized email accounts, it would be nice to have that detected and use the GitKraken email account to find the Gravatar instead of creating a random avatar. This would help to on aesthetics for the commit avatars for us users that have GitHub secure configurations (no real emails on commit messages)

Great suggestion, but that would only work for showing your own avatar, not that of other contributors who are also using GitHub-anonymized emails.
I think a better approach would be to display the user's GitHub avatar for those commits. It's pretty simple to convert the privacy email address to a GitHub user avatar URL. This is how some other projects have handled the same issue:
I don't want to register to gravatar, please allow an alternative to gravatar.
