find out a github user’s (hidden) email address

Problem
You want to contact someone on GitHub but (s)he doesn’t indicate his/her email on the profile page. What to do?

Solution
Figure it out :) The manual steps are indicated here. I made a Python script of it that can be found here: https://github.com/jabbalaci/Bash-Utils/blob/master/github_user_email.py .

Usage example:

$ ./github_user_email.py 
Github info (username or repo. link): https://github.com/jabbalaci/Bash-Utils                                 
jabba.laci@gmail.com

If you want to hide your email address, then here are some tips.
