Username mapping issue

Chris Hoffman
created an issue

I pushed my repository from Eclipse and when I went to my site, it showed as my username was unmapped. I then had to go map my username to my username. See attached.

    Hi Chris,

    This is actually by design. We suggest that you include your validated email address in your commit string as suggested here, http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BITBUCKET/Setting+the+Mercurial+Username+for+your+Bitbucket+Commits

    The problem with using your Bitbucket username is that it is often the case that other users can commit as you or vice-versa. It is often the case that a local username will be 'david' and this has caused a lot of commits to be misattributed on Bitbucket in the past.

    The solution is to change your mercurial commit string or to alias as you have done.

    Sorry for the trouble,

    Dylan
