GitHub commit dates are off

Over the last several days my Github commits from Xcode are on a day lag. If I commit today, my Github profile shows it was committed yesterday. I also checked the git log with terminal using command “git log --pretty=fuller” and saw that AuthorDate is the same as CommitDate, so wondering if this is a GitHub specific issue.

Hi @mhossain495

I haven’t been able to successfully reproduce this.

  • Cloned my repository using Xcode.

  • Edited the main branch and created a commit.

  • Pushed that commit.
    All done in Xcode.

  • Checked my repository on GitHub for the latest commit.
    Adding .patch to the end of the commit to get more info.
    The commits match my local environment.

Thanks so much for looking into this. I decided to work on another project, committed and pushed with Xcode and I think that may have fixed my github commit history. That or maybe github contribution history corrected itself. I will go back to the project where this issue started to occur and check whether the commit goes through to the github site for the correct day. That is if I push code for Dec 22, the github site will show a contribution for Dec 22.

@ernest-phillips Just pushed a commit and GitHub commit date matches actual commit date. Very strange, might have been a temporary issue with either my commits or GitHub. Thanks again for looking into this.
