Git: Repository view author/date inconsistency
In the git repository view, the "Author" field displayed for each commit is the git author (correct), but the "Date" or "Age" column displays the committer date (wrong & inconsistent with the author field). Committer and author are different when commits get rewritten, e.g. during a rebase or a cherry pick. So if Alice commits a patch in a bugfix branch 3 years ago, and then Bob cherry-picks that patch into the master branch 2 days ago, then, in Git terminology, Alice is the "author" and Bob is the "committer" of that master commit. However, Redmine displays the commit as "Added by Alice 2 days ago", which is wrong. Redmine should display the author name and date everywhere. At least that's what all git repository viewers I know (e.g. gitk) do.
