Enforce Push Author Stash Hook

What special case does checking the "Allow alternate email (<username>@)" check box allow for?

The obvious assumption is that it allows an alternate email but wouldn't that directly oppose the default check "Require matching email address (required)" which cannot be turned off?

The logic appears to be a bit more subtle. When the 'Allow alternate email' check box is checked, the hook will allow two email addresses:

  • The one that is configured in the user directory (could be the LDAP directory)
  • The one that matches username@domain.configured.in.user.directory

For instance say that your username is scarter and your email address according to LDAP is seth.carter@company.com

Without the checkbox checked, only commits authored by seth.carter@company.com would be allowed.

With the checkbox checked, both seth.carter@company.com and scarter@company.com would be allowed.


Thanks Michael, while it isn't what I wanted it to be it does explain what it actually does!
