Pull request bot name ("beep boop") in email notifications


#1

When I get an email notification from GitHub when the PR bot merges a PR or closes an issue, the sender is shown as “beep boop”:

This is because GitHub uses the real name instead of @username when sending email notifications.
The first time I got this I thought it was spam, until I looked at it in more detail.

Can we maybe change the bots’ name to beep boop (the .NET Core Bot) to make this a little less confusing?

This is good feedback. Thanks for posting it, we’ll take a look.
