Extract GitHub actor IDs from GitHub events

Authored by epriestley on Mar 28 2016, 6:44 PM.



Ref T10538. This probably gets push events where GitHub does not recognize the author wrong, but I don't have any of those yet.

Test Plan

Added and ran unit tests.

Uh, not sure it's actually possible to query GitHub for users by user ID, so this may be 100% useless. Let me figure that out first.

It looks like:

  • No APIs exist for querying user by ID (/users and /search/users do not appear to have any mechanisms for this). You can only query by username.
  • Users can change their names at any time.
  • Users can change their names to the name of a previously existing user (sometimes??).
  • hurf durf durf derp derp derp derp


So this is perfect as-is. Glorious!
