We’re a team of 4 developers and we’ve been using SubGit with a starter license for about 6 months.
Yesterday, one of the developer tried to push from a new workstation and was informed by SubGit that the number of users was exhausted, we had reached the 10-th commiter on the git side. This is surprising since we are only 4.
I used “git shortlog -sne” to try to find the root of the problem and discovered that each of us had 2-3 variations of our names and mails, because they were not carefully configured on each workstation that we use. This is amplified with the current covid crisis because we all had to work on our personal machines at some point, where our personal email was configured in git.
We temporarily fixed the issue by correctly configuring the user.name and user.email of my coworker who had the problem. But we have a new colleague arriving in october.
Is there a clean way to fix this problem? We are using GitLab and we’d really like to avoid having to rebuild the git repository.
