Co-author GitHub integration persistence


Was working with colleague and adding each other as co-authors. I noticed that on his atom he could leave me as a co-author and it seemed to persist, whereas on my machine I had to re-add him each time.

I may have misinterpreted what I saw on his machine, but is there a way to lock in a co-author until I unlock it? Maybe a feature request?


Can you add more details like step-by-step instructions to reproduce the behavior your’e seeinig? A GIF might be helpful too.

When I tried things out in a test repository, I see if I add a co-author in the commit box, that person sticks until I remove them. I’m on 1.28.2 and macOS 10.12.6.


Seems to work now. If I see again I’ll post video/gif here.
