Description narayanp 2014-02-13 07:59:25 UTC
I am not sure how to check feature "[Version Control] Fixed email overriding for Git." as this
is implemented in Release note of X.S 4.2.4. to check this issue I have checked-out a solution from git and then I am opening file which is having some changes and checking the details like user name and email id. but I am seeing same behavior in both X.S 4.2.3 branch and X.S 4.2.4(build 17). This is the screencast for the same: http://www.screencast.com/t/TXRsSQwxvbqi . Please let me know am I missing any step here? here.

I have followed:
From the developer:

"Instead of the email, the user name was written. So, if you had "name" as name, and "email@blah.com" as email, instead of "name email@blah.com", you'd have "name <name>" in the commit data.". But this is not more clear to me.

X.S 4.2.4(build 17)
Mono 3.2.7

Please provide me some steps so that I can check this feature.

I have checked it again as per comment#1 after entering details in Xamarin Studio->Author Information and observed that with X.S 4.2.4(build 17) I am getting:
