    Hmm, I have Matt as the Author in my git repository, but when I did the
    git format-patch and sent this off via quilt, it removed him as the author

    I may need to write a script to force the From line to be shown in the
    output files.

    Here's the top of that file in my quilt tree that was produced:

    From 5c681e0fbbcecae2f446a5cce2d3556a536f9719 Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001

    Impact: alignment option for script

    Ingo, If you pull this from my git tree, it will keep the authorship
