I've recently been forced to switch from Ubuntu over to Windows XP for my university studies and have installed the Aptana Studio 3 beta which looks good. I set it up with portable Git and have set my user and email in the usual way using the built-in console.
However, when I push to my GitHub repository, my commits have no author associated with them (shows as 'Unknown'). My email address on GitHub and in my Git config match but even if they didn't I would expect to see something other than 'Unknown'.
While technically this doesn't matter for this particular project (as I am the sole author) it would be nice to fix this for future projects.
As a side question: can I assign an author to commits which don't have one?
