Git: "Committer" limit, or "Author" limit?

In git, the "Committer" and "Author" are two separate concepts. However, the FishEye documentation seems to use the two terms interchangeably, so I'm confused as to what counts towards the "Committer limit".

So is the limit applied to the Committer field, or the Author field, or both?

(background: we have problems with the same person using multiple name/email address combinations, which we map with mailmap, but I want to write a pre-receive hook to stop it happening again.. just need to know which field to use)

FishEye uses the author and author email fields from git to form what Fisheye refers to as the committer name. It is this combination which is used in the committer limit checks.

There is overloading of terms across a number of SCM types and FishEye itself. It's hard to avoid this problem but I apologize for the confusion.

It sounds like you are familiar with https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/FISHKB/Git+or+Hg+Repository+exceeds+number+of+allowed+Committers already.
