 > Also; What do we need to do to get all commits referencing the author?
 Ie. compare
 to https://github.com/WordPress/wordpress-

 GitHub maintain an "authors" file, mapping each committer to an email
 address, I'm not exactly sure where this file is stored but I believe when
 a new committer is added it is this file @MarkJaquith has to update to get
 the "sync" working again for https://github.com/wordpress/wordpress

 When importing a new VCS repo into GitHub you map the committers email
 address during import: https://cloudup.com/cy8Oe4GEX-n

 > Note the differences in the author email addresses. This can be done for
 all committers by asking them to add their `username at git.wordpress.org`
 email to their GitHub account. Once they do that, then GitHub will link it
 up to their accounts, for example: https://github.com/WordPress/wordpress-

 This doesn't work so well for other committers who also want to have their
 email address displayed publicly on their GitHub profile, they may want to
 use it for non WordPress purposes, for example https://github.com/rmccue,
 he'd be unable to have both his personal email address and
 `rmccue at git.wordpress.org`
