Description:
------------
My name (Colin O'Dell) contains an apostrophe character.  When I submitted the VCS request form (http://php.net/git-php.php), the resulting email to the mailing list (http://news.php.net/php.doc/969385877) didn't properly (un)escape the apostrophe.

Expected result:
----------------
My name would appear as: Colin O'Dell

Actual result:
--------------
See http://news.php.net/php.doc/969385877

There's a backslash in the "From" field.  The email body also contains a backslash followed by the numeric HTML entity.

And here's how the email came through: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/449877/ShareX/2015/09/2015-09-06_22-17-37.png
