The username can go in the URL. For example:

for ssh, or:

  git push https://user@host/repo.git

for http.

For ssh, you can't specify a password automatically, but you should look
into using key authentication (which can then be cached by ssh-agent).
For http, you can put the password in the URL, but there are some

Older versions of git can read from .netrc, but I would not recommend

Newer versions of git (v1.7.9 and up) support "credential helpers" which
will read from a password wallet or other secure storage provided by the
OS. There is a helper for OS X Keychain in contrib/, and somebody has
been working on one for Windows.  What platform are you using?
