22.6.1 Configuring Git

If you have not done so already, you may wish to set a name and email that will be associated with your commits (see Telling Git your name in Git User Manual). If you wish to use a different name or email just for commits in this repository, you can use git config --local, or edit .git/config in the repository instead of ~/.gitconfig.

Other important Git configuration will automatically be configured when building the project (see Building from Git).
