Changed bzr email address, commits aren't linked to my account?

Asked by Dylan McCall

So, I (kind of accidentally) changed my bzr email address from my address (which is the primary one for my Launchpad account) to my address (which _can't_ be my primary one, but is a confirmed email address for my account)

Looking at a branch where I recently did some commits, Launchpad is just printing my name+email address as written.
Commits under my email have my name printed as a link pointing to my Launchpad profile.

This probably isn't a big deal, but it's wrong! :P
Should I just switch back to committing with my primary email address, or is there something else I can do to get this working?

If you are using the launchpad plugin for bzr, I believe you can set your lp username regardless of email with the lp-login command. If you aren't already using it, I really recommend it for anyone using launchpad and bzr.

The identity expressed via 'bzr lp-login' is the identity used for bzr+ssh authentication. The identity of revision authors/committers is fully separate from this.

Launchpad is supposed to match bzr revision author strings to accounts based on the email address. Please indicate a branch containing some revisions where this is not happening, so that someone can be asked to look into it.

It can take up to a day for a new bzr email address to be linked to your Launchpad account. This seems to have happened now.
