I have app servers that I bootstrap together using Chef + some ad-hoc bash scripts. The problem is, when I want to run an update on one of these app servers, I get:
19:00:28: *** Please tell me who you are.
git config –global user.email “[email protected]” git config –global user.name “Your Name”
Do I really need to set this for doing a simple
git pull origin master every time I update an app server? Is there anyway to override this behavior so it doesn't error out when name and email are not set?
