Hey there. You would need to rebase those commits, ensure you have signed with the desired identity, push that up somewhere, and then find a TU that is willing to force push your rebased tree to the `master` branch of the repository.

Please note that even if you're able to find a TU that is willing to do this, downstream users (including third party AUR helpers) would need to know how to handle a tree that has been overwritten via a force push. This may be undesired.

As a way to prevent this issue in the future, you can double check the identity you have configured either in your global (`~/.gitconfig` or `~/.config/git/config`) or local (`./.git/config` in the repository) configuration. If this is somewhat of a critical issue for you, I'd also recommend writing a hook to prevent yourself from ever committing with an incorrect identity.
