git cleanup

Going through git repos that I’m still using and making them all use a consistent user name and email so the commits link by to my profile. The anonymous noreply email didn’t work.

Having to filter-branch everything so any other machines with these projects need to pull them before pushing and clobbering the rewritten usernames.

git filter-branch –commit-filter \ ‘if [ “$GIT_AUTHOR_NAME” = “lucasw” ]; then \ export GIT_AUTHOR_NAME=”Lucas Walter”;\ export;\ export GIT_COMMITTER_NAME=”Lucas Walter”;\ export;\ fi;\ git commit-tree “$@”’
