Then you should probably use a properly instrumented call to
`git filter-branch --commit-filter`
According to the git-filter-branch manual , it exports a set of
environment variables GIT_AUTHOR_* and GIT_COMMIT_* whose values can
be changed in the filter code to affect the recorded commit.
I think that should be something like:
$ git filter-branch --commit-filter '
if [ "$GIT_AUTHOR_NAME" = "Marcello Henrique" ]; then
GIT_AUTHOR_NAME="John Random Hacker";
May be the filter code should also `export` the changed variables -- I
don't really know.
