We have been unable to index a newly cloned git repository with FishEye because it displays an error after a while:
Exceeded number of allowed committers
The git repository is cloned from TFS where 12 committers had checked in code over the life of the project (4 years). Most of these committers no longer work for the company so cannot be considered as 'active' committers.
As suggested by the article at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/FISHKB/Git+or+Hg+Repository+exceeds+number+of+allowed+Committerswe have committed a new .mailmap file to the git repository which maps all of the inactive users/emails to one single 'inactive' user (Inactive Users <firstname.lastname@example.org>). However this appears to have no effect, as the re-clone and re-index continues to repeatedly fail.
Entries take the form of:
We are using FishEye 3.3.0 Stater license on Windows Server 2008.
It appears that I did not read the article at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/FISHKB/Git+or+Hg+Repository+exceeds+number+of+allowed+Committers carefuly enough.
Entries in the .mailmap file MUST have the target name/email BEFORE the 'old' name/email. Once I reversed all my entries, all historical committers are now mapped to the single inactive committer and FishEye is able to re-index successfully.
Thank you for your response. I have found entries in the log which list the committers.

The committer list contains 11 names/email addresses. 8 of these name/email pairs have been specified in the .mailmap file to map to a single Inactive User <inactive@[company].tfs.local>
git shortlog -nse displays a list of 12 committers - 11 of which match those in the committer list in the FishEye log file.
I can confirm that the .mailmap file is included in the FishEye clone (D:\ProgramData\Atlassian\FishEye\Data\var\cache\[gitRepo])
