PyCharm exposed password via Git

I installed Git and started using it without creating a config file.  I noticed that PyCharm supplied my network password in lieu of the email address for both the Author and Committer fields.  

Adding a config file solved that problem.  When identifying the user and email, it picks up on that instead.  

Now, if anyone can tell me how to edit a Git commit object, I would appreciate the info.

This happened again when starting another project.  It seems that the config file should be created automatically.   Defaulting to a password as contact information doesn't make sense.

Please take a look at about configuring Git for the first time.

Btw, the whole book is very good and worth reading.

The problem isn't with Git.  Git works fine, and it works correctly with other tools.
