[Cdash] Registered users and Perforce

Hi Pedro,

The main issue is that some VCS don't provide the email field.

I think we should change the SQL request to add a match on the 
dailyupdatefile.email with user2repository.credential along with the 
usual request we have right now.

Could you log a bug report and we'll try to address that.
