Description Mike Krüger 2013-03-04 04:31:32 UTC
If no user name is set .git/config contains something like:

	name = mkruger

And this can lead to invalid commits, pushes don't work correctly etc. We should simply not allow that in the UI.

Putting a warning isn't enough - this can really mess up the work flow.
