Narrowing the Author column in Magit

The Org and Worg git repos can be committed to only via ssh protocol (and not https), and for technical reasons, I cannot commit to those repos via ssh from my primary development machine. So I ended up with a flow that involves pushing commits to those repos using my Nexus 6p phone.

Magit is how I git, and I love to primarily work from the ∗magit-log∗ buffer (M-x magit-status, l b). But the default column widths were not optimal on a Nexus 6p 5.7" screen. And that’s what inspired this tweak, which looks great on a regular desktop monitor too.

I am assuming that you already know what Org or org-mode is and that’s why you are here.

You would want to build Org from its development branch (master branch) to get the latest and greatest goodies plus bug fixes! Go through the ORG-NEWS file to read about the new features.

If you like what you see there, here are the steps for installing the development version of Org.
