OK, I read a few more comments, and it is a good idea to filter out
the mail addresses and passwords from the user table before making the
dump available.

The user table can be filtered after the dump is extracted from the
database.  It might be possible to adjust the dump program to drop
some of the rows in the table, but I am not sure how to do that. :)
