Git identity config keeps getting lost


On mac os Big Sur (both m1 & intel cpu) I keep having to enter the git config for my identity all the time in the git panel.

In addition when I try to enter my identity some letters dissapear.

This is very frustrating, I tried the atom beta edition and same issue.

I believe an issue was raised before apologies I could not find it.


Atom    : 1.53.0
Electron: 6.1.12
Chrome  : 76.0.3809.146
Node    : 12.4.0

  1. I’m seeing this on Windows and Big Sur in the latest version of Atom. Atom is clearing my global git config, affecting not just Atom but any git actions I try to perform.
