A Hashrocket project

Add email to github account

You can have multiple emails associated with your github account so that if your commits have user_x@example.com or on another machine your commits have user_y@example.com they'll both show up as you on the github system.

In my case, all commits on hashrocket workstations are dev+somebody@hashrocket.com and we change who that somebody is with the pear application. So when I'm working on a hashrocket workstation I commit as dev+chriserin@hashrocket.com.

When editing a profile on github there is a left hand menu labeled 'personal settings' and in that menu there is an emails link. When you click emails you have the opportunity to 'Add email address'. There ya go! Happy committing!
