Removing entry from git authors dropdown / Default author

Is it possible to remove entries from the git authors drowdown (shown during commit)?

Or can I set a default author somewhere?

If not, these would be very useful features to have.

Thanks!
You need to set the author in the dialog only if you're committing changes made by someone else. Otherwise, the author and the committer will be the same; they are specified in the system-wide Git configuration (see http://git-scm.com/book/en/Getting-Started-First-Time-Git-Setup for more information).

Right! The obvious solution... ;-)

Thanks for your help.
