changing your committer name & email globally

you can run the "git config" command with the --global flag; this will make sure all of your future commits use the given information:

$ git config --global user.name "john doe"
$ git config --global user.email "john@doe.org"

changing your committer name & email per repository

if you want to use special settings only when working in a certain repository, you can simply omit the --global flag. this makes the configuration valid only in that repository:

$ git config user.name "john doe"
$ git config user.email "john@doe.org"
