The committer field generally identifies the committer "physically", and isn't usually overriden. You'll find <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> in my committer field, e.g. > > .git/branch-name > > Symbolic name of the branch of this repository. > > Isn't this the same as $(readlink .git/HEAD), with some trimming? No, that is something totally separate from the usual concepts of branches and repositories, designed to make it possible to distinguish between repositories etc. from the outside of the system. -- Petr "Pasky" Baudis Stuff: http://pasky.or.cz/ If you want the holes in your knowledge showing up try teaching someone. -- Alan Cox - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to [EMAIL PROTECTED] More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
