Three levels of GIT config
# There are 3 levels of git config; project, global and system.
# project: Project configs are only available for the current project and stored in .git/config in the project's directory.
# global: Global configs are available for all projects for the current user and stored in ~/.gitconfig.
# system: System configs are available for all the users/projects and stored in /etc/gitconfig.
# Create a project specific config, you have to execute this under the project's directory.
$ git config "John Doe"
# Create a global config
$ git config --global "John Doe"
# Create a system config
$ git config --system "John Doe"
