I was curious about something. I gather the ‘user’ name is used to look up the attribution and email address when doing a git export, and the authors file contains lines like:
user = Some User <email@example.com>
So what happens if there are different people at different sites that have the same ‘user’ name, and they each supply patches in (presumably different) commits?
For example, we have a commit by:
bob = Bob Alpha <firstname.lastname@example.org>
on one system, and:
bob = Bob Omega <email@example.com>
on another system, and then we want to pull these changes into the master repo?
Does this get more interesting if somebody takes a number of commits and then does a ‘bk collapse’?
