Dist::Zilla::Plugin::Git::Contributors - Add contributor names from git to your distribution
In your dist.ini:
This is a Dist::Zilla plugin that extracts all names and email addresses from git commits in your repository and adds them to the distribution metadata under the
x_contributors key. It takes a minimalist approach to this -- no data is stuffed into other locations, including stashes -- if other plugins wish to work with this information, they should extract it from the distribution metadata.
When true, authors (as defined by the preamble section in your dist.ini) are added to the list of contributors. When false, authors are filtered out of the list of contributors. Defaults to false.
Defaults to true; set to false to remove the current user (who is doing the distribution release) from the contributors list. It is applied after
include_authors, so you will be removed from the list even if you are (one of the) distribution author(s) and
include_authors = 1.
You probably don't want this option -- it was added experimentally to change how contributors are displayed on http://metacpan.org, but it was decided that this should be managed at a different layer than the metadata.
order_by = name, contributors are sorted alphabetically (ascending); when
order_by = commits, contributors are sorted by number of commits made to the repository (descending). The default value is
Indicates a path, relative to the repository root, to search for commits in. Technically: "Consider only commits that are enough to explain how the files that match the specified paths came to be." Defaults to the repository root. Can be used more than once. You should almost certainly not need this.
CANONICALIZING NAMES AND ADDRESSES
If you or a contributor uses multiple names and/or email addresses to make commits and would like them mapped to a canonical value (e.g. their
cpan.org address), you can do this by adding a .mailmap file to your git repository, with entries formatted as described in "MAPPING AUTHORS" in
git help shortlog (https://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-shortlog.html).
ADDING CONTRIBUTORS TO POD DOCUMENTATION
This module aims to properly handle non-ascii characters in contributor names. However, on Windows you might need to do a bit more: see https://github.com/msysgit/msysgit/wiki/Git-for-Windows-Unicode-Support for supported versions and extra configurations you may need to apply.
Bugs may be submitted through the RT bug tracker (or bug-Dist-Zilla-Plugin-Git-Contributors@rt.cpan.org). I am also usually active on irc, as 'ether' at
