Just org-exported something and my name was at the top of the exported document. How does org know my name? On Fedora.


Emacs looks up the currently logged in user in the password database, and stores it in user-full-name, which org-mode then inserts when exporting. You can edit its value using M-x customize-variable.

See (elisp) User Identification as suggested by @Basil
