Please consider announcing this tool on the main Git list [1] as well.

If you won't mind, my feedback is "why Ruby?" Git's internals use C,
POSIX shell, Perl and Tcl/Tk (for its two stock GUI applications), and
this is what gets distributed with Git for Window and this is what's
required to be present on POSIX systems when installing Git.  So while
I'm not advocating for Perl (or POSIX shell or Tcl) vs Ruby on their
technical merits, writing this tool in one of those languages would
make chances for adoption of your tool quite bigger.

I'm also curious what's the real use case for this tool.  After
skimming through the description only pair (hot-seat?) programming
seems like a good fit, otherwise one just does

  $ git add --local user.name ...
  $ git add --local user.email ...

to have a repository-local username and e-mail, when needed.

And one minor point: the page you linked to is well-put but lacks a link
to the project's page (or it's location is not obvious).
