We're having a problem where all of our Git changelog entries in Lighthouse are appearing under one user, despite the fact that they've been committed by different users (who are all part of our project on Lighthouse).

How can I resolve this and make sure that commits to Git appear under the correct user?

    You need to link Lighthouse users with their git commit names. First, check your user name with the git log or git show commands:

    ~lh(master)> git show
    commit 94f67fefd9418c00642d70f39aae6291496eb1b4
    Author: rick <[email blocked]>

    Then, set your git committer name in your Lighthouse profile (see screenshot). That form is currently being redesigned, with a proper FAQ coming up soon. It is backdated, so all previous changesets will have the correct name.
