I just migrated my repositories from BitBucket. They are all committed from various personal computers I've had over the years. As such, I often did not always have the same git credentials in the commits being I'm the only one to ever commit on these.
So, it struck me as odd that there's a random GitHub user on one of my projects listed as a contributor. Only GitHub thinks this, the same commit on BitBucket shows my name in the commit history.
What's going on?

Most likely this is because one of your commits was under an email address that is associated with a different GitHub account. See the Support Protips article Why is my commit associated with the wrong person? for more information.
