Why are sources.seinlet.com committers' e-mails public?


I can't find any solution to remove my e-mail address from sources.seinlet.com so I'm asking this question and looking for clear answer.

Few years ago I've been participating in creation of small script on github.com. Now I see that that repository was moved to sources.seinlet.com and all e-mails were publicized. My mailbox is now visible for wider range of spammers.

Can anyone explain me how can I remove my e-mail address from this repository http://sources.seinlet.com/changelog/jquery-week-calendar? It seems that I don't have account there (I've tried to use request new password form).

Thanks for any help.

Cheers, A.

It looks like somone at seinlet.com has indexed that github repository and made it publicly accesible.

Your email address is visible, because the repo you contributed to https://github.com/themouette/jquery-week-calendar/ is a public repository and your git username with which you made the comit using, contained your email address.

If you sign-up for an account on http://sources.seinlet.com/login/signup.do using the same email address, then FishEye will map your committer name to your username and wont render an email address next to those commits.

Thank you for your response. I registered in that site and my e-mail address disappeared from some pages but then appeared in other ones. For example when I hover my nickname or open my profile I can see my e-mail. It's privacy policy violation so I want to remove that content if you don't know how to solve my problem.
