    I'm trying to follow this tutorial for setting up git with cloud. Problem is the version of git on my cloud is older (1.7.2) than the version in the tutorial (1.7.4 or later). So I don't have the ability to reference "--local" to edit the config. I only have "--global" and "--system" available.

    git config --local user.name "Your Name"
    git config --local user.email "[email protected]"

    Good news is cloud support is going to update my git version. Bad news is they are not going to do it until Tuesday and I don't want to wait until then before I can continue. I'm a newbie, so I'm not sure if there's a way to work around this and edit the config file without "--local". I'd appreciate the help if there is.
