      Description

      tagging fails if there's no ~/.gitconfig, and you get the following error:

          • Please tell me who you are.

      Run

      git config --global user.email "you@example.com"
      git config --global user.name "Your Name"

      to set your account's default identity.
      Omit --global to set the identity only in this repository.
      ------------------

      git plugin should recover from this error by setting the user-wide name
      information automatically.
