Git committer e-mail. Which t use ?

Podcast (7 October 2015) http://bikeshed.fm/35


“Do you use a private or work e-mail when pushing git commits to repositories.”

🤔🤔🤔

The question is worth asking yourself as it’s (also) ’bout attribution of work you have done in either a public (fx GitHub) or private (fx Internal) domain.

The use of .mailmap partially solves the issue if you have by accident used multiple e-mail addresses when pushing commits in the past. But consider your opinion going forward…

“Do you stick with using one single e-mail of your own or the company provided one.”

🤔🤔🤔


Looking back myself I will probably (!) stick with using my own mail address for all git commits I do in the future. As attribution back to me becomes easier and the knack of using .mailmap will be (mostly) a thing of the past! (plus gitlab community edition does not yet support the .mailmap functionality!)

UK home secretary: ‘real people’ don’t want unbreakable encryption – Naked Security

I still do not (and never will) get why some people endorse weakening security. It will never result in good. Only making it easier for the crooks to get our data from all the vulnerable devices still in existence today. (And more to come if the proposal gets through parliament)
