    For some reason I was not cced on this... I thought I was always cced on support questions and so I wasn't actually checking the tender questions... So sorry for the really really later reply.

    To fix this problem, simply open ~/Library/Application Support/MacHg/hgrc in a text editor and change the line

    username = Jason Harris <[email blocked]>

    or whatever to something else. Or you can change this in your ~/.hgrc file if you have one. Or you can change this in each repositories .hg/hgrc file to change this on a repository by repository basis... See some of the Mercurial helps tutorials for details if you need to or re-raise the question and I will answer in more detail.
