Imagine your working on a project on github.com and then you want to move that project over to another git server (imagine its another github server, thats not hosted on github.com, but maybe its your own person github.personal.org for your organization). We need to move all of our commits over from our Repo (which we call here Test1). But we also need to rename our github username, to whatever username we use on our new github server. These steps cover how to do that.

Assuming Test1 is a very simply repo with just one branch.

Get This Info

Name of repo: Test1

FROM or SOURCE:

github.com email: boss@kossboss.com

github.personal.org commiter name: Koss Bossy

github.personal.org email: kossbossy

Steps

The END.
