git <author> settings from logs

I'm using git with
remote.origin.url= and I
notice my commits in the log do not have an email address in the
<author> value.

Is that a gitcvs thing, a setting on, or a local git setting?

Good email example:
commit 8fd97e5b177e8f0ae3c211989bf0e42d5fd292c6
Author: Alan Modra <amodra@bigpond....>

vs. mine:
commit 4aa22541625dfd9b9af6028e28776def923317d1
Author: qneill <qneill>

For my same CVS commit, I see in the CVS log:
revision 1.1724
date: 2011/05/11 22:35:20;  author: qneill;  state: Exp;  lines: +5 -0
