Default Git user in Linux
Setting the default Git Author and Commiter
Do you want to change the user that is automatically selected when committing with git? I had been using Git and Netbeans for a long time with the niggling issue of what user was set as default when commiting.
This might sound like a small issue but from time to time when I was diligently committing my work I would forget to change the user and as a consequence my commit would be associated with a generic user that was created when I first set up my system (not very professional).
