If a contributor in a Git repository has the same first name as me, GitLens will display "You" as the author. The links and the avatar are for the right user, but when hovering over a LOC, it'll say something like, "You, a x time ago".

GitLens Version:

  • VSCode Version: 8.5.2
  • OS Version: MacOS High Sierra 10.13.4

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Go to a repo that includes a contributor with the same first name as you.
  2. Go to a line of code which that contributor committed.
