Make "empty ident" error message a bit more helpful.
It appears that some people who did not care about having bogus names in their own commit messages are bitten by the recent change to require a sane environment [*1*]. While it was a good idea to prevent people from using bogus names to create commits and doing sign-offs, the error message is not very informative. This patch attempts to warn things upfront and hint people how to fix their environments. [Footnote] *1* The thread is this one. Especially this message. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
