LAB 5.1 git commit fail
In step 6 of Lab 5.1 we must execute
git commit -m "My initial commit" --author="The genuis me <firstname.lastname@example.org>"
I get the reply back
"*** Please tell me who you are." .....fatal: unable to auto-detect email address (got 'student@ubuntu.(none)'). I am using the official course VM Ubuntu 16-04.
In step 7 you do actually set these options, and once completed step 6 will work
I suggest to maybe swap the steps in the labs?
