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:

-------------

Impact: alignment option for recordmcount.pl script

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

Thanks,

-- Steve
