$ git --version
git version
Prelude Data.FileStore> let fs = (gitFileStore "/tmp/test") 
Prelude Data.FileStore> initialize fs
Prelude Data.FileStore> create (gitFileStore "/tmp/test") "/tmp/test/test.txt" (Author "foo" "bar") "description" "content"

*** Exception: UnknownError: Could not git commit /tmp/test/test.txt

*** Please tell me who you are.


  git config --global ""
  git config --global "Your Name"
