    Can you guys provide some changesets so I can sample them? It's most likely due to the fact that you haven't filled out your ~/.hgrc files correctly.

    Please fill them out as such:

    username = Firstname Lastname <your@email.address>

    I'm pretty sure it's related to the user committing not having entered their email address, looking at the equivalent log from the command line show "Joe Bloggs <>"

    Related, the rss updates say those changesets are from None.

    Still, showing a random user isn't really the correct behavior, even if people's username isn't entered with an email.

    Hi Chris, nice to see you here.

    No, the mos2025 is a recent bug, in which a lot of unidentified people are being related to that user. I'm investigating why.

    Actually, it turns out that mos2025 had signed up without an email address, and thus a lot of people were thought to be him.

    I've entered a bogus email address for his account now, and these mis-associations should stop happening. We are working on better identity management, too.
