Now that we're using git, we can make a distinction between Author
and Committer, automatically.

When people create patches with 'git format-patch' and send them to
this list for inclusion, the patch will include them as the Author.

When Daniel, et. al. then applies the patch (with 'git am' or
similar method), they will be the Committer.

This is nice because 'git log', 'git shortlog', etc... will give the
appropriate credit to the author, and the committer doesn't need to
keep writing in the commit msg who the patch came from.

Just an FYI to those new to git.
