UserIDs and setups for developers
My inclination from wayback was that if I had done something in
perl, the email address in the documentation would be perl@....
It seems that I need to get serious about some of this, and I am
not quite sure what is the best way to approach this.
I am guessing the running Git is the best option for version
control. But looking at the setup for dummies part of the
documentation, it wants people to configure Git with an email
address. Which makes me think that to do things in the way I had
originally leanded towards, I would have to have to add a UserID
of perl to my computer, who happened to have /home/fred/src/perl
as a HOME directory, and that the UID of perl is the same as that
Does this make sense? Is there a better way?
