We have a fisheye starter license for our small team of six developers. Since multiple of our developers had their git configuration incorrect for some time (i.e. their mail addresses were wrong causing the commits to appear to be from different users) we are now reaching Fisheye's limit of ten committers causing the initial indexing of the repository to stop. I was hoping that this could be solved using the user mappings, but apparently that does not change it.
Is there anything we can do aside from buying the next license level? Maybe manually change files in the repository to exchange the wrong git usernames with the correct ones?
There are a few solutions offered in Restrictions on FishEye Starter Licenses.
The two most practical are to set a start revision (very simple to do, but you'll miss part of the history in FishEye), and to map committers.
This is described in the Git or Hg Repository exceeds number of allowed Committers Knowledge Base article.
Although you can rewrite history, it's much simpler to use a .mailmap to map the incorrect old email addresses to the correct ones.
