My git config user.email was a different one (company's email address) when I made commits in a private repository's master branch (no PR was required to be made, I could directly push in master branch). I could see the number of contributors increased by 1 but I couldn't find my commits or name in the contributions section. Then, I updated my config using
git config --global user.email "<github_mail_address>"
I started getting my name in the contributions but all the commits I made previously weren't there under anyone's name. How can I associate those with my name? My user.name is same for both user.email. Is there anyway I can associate those commits under my name?
