Github Commit Authoring

I have been working on my startup for a while now, although the repo is private. I recently made the commits show up on my profile. What I realized is I was authoring the commits to a user that doesn't exist for the past 2 years and now I don't get the clout associated with a full github activity.

Obviously a small issue and just vanity however I would love to be able to properly author the past commits. Is there any way to do that for all commits by a user over the course of 2 years?

If it's mostly just you in the repo, you can amend the repo history and change the author to an email address associated with your account. Checkout git-filter-repo with the mailmap option.

Not just me sadly, like 5 other devs.
