git about shows settings set by

$ git pair js sp user.name=Josh Susser & Sam Pierson email@example.com
git pair to set the git config user info that sets the commit user metadata. You'll need to create a
.pairs config file to map initials to names and email ids. The example file:
# .pairs - configuration for 'git pair' # place in project or home directory pairs: eh: Edward Hieatt js: Josh Susser; jsusser sf: Serguei Filimonov; serguei email: prefix: pair domain: pivotallabs.com #global: true
You can put the .pairs file in your project repo root directory and check it into git, or you can put it in your ~ directory so it's available to all projects on the workstation.
By default this command affects the configuration in the current project (.git/config). Use the
--global option or add 'global: true' to your pairs file to set the global git configuration for all projects (~/.gitconfig).
$ git project pivots
This script sets the user account you will use to access repos hosted on github.com. It creates a symlink from
id_github_pivotal<project>, which switches the SSH key you are currently using to access GitHub repos. Make sure you have the following lines in your .ssh/config file:
Host github.com User git IdentityFile /Users/pivotal/.ssh/id_github_current
