Comment (by knarf):

 user and email are supposed to be defined in the default section of
 defs.local.ini. (Almost) none of the machines define these. Before you run
 simfactory the first time, you are either supposed to copy the example, or
 use "sim setup". Did you do one of the two? These should generate these

 note: I was thrown off first because 'hal1' is one of my machines, and I
 suspected an error there. And while hal1 is one of the machines where it
 actually makes sense to specify a fixed user name (and because of that you
 don't get an error for a missing user name), I suspect the fact that
 'hal1' is mentioned here might just be "bad luck".

 As for where to specify user: It does make sense to put it into [default]
 because a lot of users have the same user name on a large number of
 machines. Whenever this is not the case you have to put it (also) in
 machine specific sections of course...
