Co-author not showing up in Contributors

I added a co-author in my commits as demonstrated by https://help.github.com/en/articles/creating-a-commit-with-multiple-authors

The PR can be seen here https://github.com/einsteinpy/einsteinpy/pull/241 , but the co-author is neither showing up in contributors https://github.com/einsteinpy/einsteinpy/graphs/contributors nor here https://github.com/einsteinpy/einsteinpy/commits?author=OVSofia .

What have I done wrong here, so that I don’t make the same mistake in future?

Thanks for letting us know.

This is something that’s been reported by others. I’ve added your report to the list. I can’t give an ETA for when this will get addressed, but we’ll update this topic when we get more information.

Even I have been having the same issue here is the link to the contributors https://github.com/Cartizon/Front-end/graphs/contributors it doesn’t show my coauthor contributions.

In this other repository even after making contributions I’m not seen https://github.com/Cartizon/Templates/graphs/contributors, I can be seen here only when hovered over the contributors’ tab.

Facing the same problem. Was this issue resolved?

I second this, seeing the same issue in our project. Note as well that despite your see you have done some commits in your activity, if you click on a particular day and try to see commits, nothing is found by the search request: https://github.com/ubuntu/zsys/commits?author=didrocks&since=2020-02-11&until=2020-02-12, while I did co-authored 3 commits on that particular day (and can see it on the grid)

Same here, I have a co-author PR https://github.com/apache/kafka/commit/de2e6938c8648f02254a645a8fff9c2fa8364ef1 which does not show-up in my co-author’s commit history: https://github.com/apache/kafka/commits?author=viktorsomogyi

@lee-dohm Any update on the progress?

@lee-dohm Is there anyone who could work on this?

As I stated before, I can’t give an ETA for when this might be addressed. You may want to keep an eye on the GitHub Changelog and the GitHub Public Roadmap.
