repository committed by another user of similar name?

Issue #1776 resolved
Paul Skinner created an issue


Just started using bitbucket. Pushed my first commit from my account (paulskinner), and for some reason the web interface shows that another user (paul) was the person to commit to my project! He has the same first name as me, and you can see it in his commit history too. screengrab attached. It is a private project.

    Do you have your /.hgrc set up correctly? Needs to be:

    username = Firstname Lastname <your@email.address>

    What you're seeing is our system having trouble identifying your commits with your user. I'm guessing you're currently committing as 'paul'?

    Great guess. Not a bug then. For future reference, where is the best place to raise such an issue?

    Many thanks,

    This place is fine. Also, would do the trick.

    I'll look into adding a FAQ entry for this.
