SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 0/3] media: vimc: Allow multiple capture devices to use the same sensor
Hi Kaaira,

Thank you for the patches.

I think this is really nice work, as it will make the vimc driver even
more useful for testing purposes.

I however just noticed that the patches seem to have lost Niklas'
authorship. Niklas posted v1 ([1]), and while there's absolutely no
issue with taking over a patch series (especially when the original
author is aware of that, and approves :-)), it's customary to keep the
original authorship.

Authorship, as recorded in the commit's "Author:" field (displayed by
"git show" or "git log" for instance), is distinct from Signed-off-by.
The original Signed-off-by line needs to be preserved to indicate the
original author's commitment to the certificate of origin ([2]), but in
itself that doesn't acknowledge original authorship of the code.

I'm sure this is an oversight. Authorship can easily be changed with the
--author option to "git commit --amend".

Not that I would try to take ownership of a commit authored by Linus, I
doubt he would appreciate that :-)

Authorship is normally preserved through git-format-patch,
git-send-email and git-am:

- git-format-patch sets the "From:" line to the patch's author

- If the "From:" line is different than the mail sender, git-send-email
replaces it with the sender's identity (as we don't want to forge
e-mails with an incorrect sender). It then adds the original "From:"
line *inside* the mail, just after the headers, right before the body
of the commit message.

- git-am sets the author to the "From:" line from the e-mail's body if
it exists, and uses the "From:" line from the e-mail's header (the
sender's identity) otherwise.

If you use those tools authorship should get preserved automatically.

Of course new patches that you would add to the series should have your
authorship.

I hope this helps clarifying the process, please let me know if you have
any question.
