Author: (no author) not defined in authors file

I'm still using git as my Subversion client and just today I came over this strange error message:

Author: (no author) not defined in /path/to/repos/authors.txt file

I'm not sure how the author can be missing on any commits in the Subversion repository, but the solution was quite simple. Just add an author called "(no author)" to the authors file like this:

(no author) = No Author <no.author@mail.com>

And then continue as normal with git svn fetch

  1. To avoid such errors, I updated the browser, and after reading an article with a
    detailed explanation the way to open txt file https://wikiext.com/txt or another convenient method, perhaps you've heard about the universal file viewer.
    Without going into details, it's suitable for almost 250 extensions of files.
    I'm comfortable using it ...

    And I advise you to download and make sure. Good luck!
