Change author on commits

Asked by Anders G. Jørgensen on 2008-09-27

I'm working on the project pluck-cms, and I have committed a lot of changes. The problem is that I have not gained karma for them, because my bazaar configuration was wrong. I found the problem, but can you change all commits from the author "Anders" to my profile?

This might be possible if we create a special script to update production. Tim is looking into it.

Great to hear, that you are trying to change it.

Hi Anders,

I was told by Tim's team that this is painful for us to do so we're going to decline it for now. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

The way to fix this in the future is to ensure "bzr whoami" is correct before doing any commits and you are using an email address which is registered in Launchpad.

No problem, I understand. And thanks for the tip.
