On the recent changes page, edits are listed with a username which is a link to the corresponding user page. I'd like the commits from git to show up with the correct username, but am unsure how Ikiwiki sources this info. It doesn't seem to correspond to "git config user.name", for instance.

Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

In the git plugin, it's usually the local part (the part before the @) of the email address (as in git config user.email). See parse_diff_tree() in IkiWiki/Plugin/git.pm.
