Here the different cases I tried: 1.) changing the initial line HOME="$HOMEDRIVE$HOMEPATH" to HOME="$USERPROFILE". Creates .gitconfig when I call git config --global user.name "Name". This file contains only the user (name, email) information. Changes are seen by -l. Commit fails with "tell me who you are".
2.) changing the initial line HOME="$HOMEDRIVE$HOMEPATH" to HOME = "C:/Documents and Settings/me/". Same behaviour as in 1.) 3) adding a line HOME = "C:/Documents and Settings/mbader/" after the complete section where home is defined. Git Bash start with an error message "HOME command not found", but I can use it. Git behaves later as if this line is not existing. git config -l sees changes in .gitconfig and in C:\Program Files\Git\etc\gitconfig, but not in C:\Documents and Settings\me\gitconfig. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Git for human beings" group.
