Exporting monotone revisions in git-fast-import(1) format often
requires translation of monotone author cert values and associated
signing keys into corresponding git author and committer
values. Translation of author and committer values and validation of
the results is controlled by these hooks. See
This hook is called for any git author or committer value that does not come from the current author map file, specified by --authors-file. If no author map file is specified this hook will be called for every unique git author and committer value. It may return the value unchanged or modify it in some way in an effort to ensure that it is valid. The default implementation attempts several common pattern replacements to produce valid authors from monotone authors.
This hook is called before the git author or committer value is
written to the export output stream. The author value is either
the mapped value from the current author map file or the value
produced by the
unmapped_git_author hook. This hook may return
true if the author is valid or false if it is not. The export will be
aborted if this hook returns false for any value.
The default definition enforces the
Name <email> pattern.
