This page will discuss the difference between a global id and per-repo ids and make some suggestions about how to manage multiple identities.

Identify yourself to Git per repository

Most people have a single Git identity. If you use Git for both Drupal projects and company projects with different email addresses for each, for example, the details can be set for each repository.

$ cd [path/to/project]
$ git config "User name"
$ git config ""

Set your global details to the details you most often use.

To check your current identity:

$ git config -l
