My commit message on private repository linked to someone profile

In the private repository, I just committed with the message “use CSS @import”.

What’s surprising is that github turns the @import into a link that leads to someone’s profile.

When that @import text was clicked it took me to the profile.

  1. Will the ‘import’ user receive a notification that his profile has been included in a commit message?
  2. Can the ‘import’ user see my private repository?

Hi @ngkusnd, welcome to the GitHub Support Community!

This is just a quirk of our username tagging system trying to be smart and link @import to a user account but getting it wrong! This user won’t have access to your repository, or be notified about it, unless you’ve explicitly invited them to be a collaborator.
