I don't think this is a blocker issue. The authorname is still valid
in the commit message, and those are *historical* commits.
After discussing in #gstreamer, we can add graft points later on if we
actually see actual problematic issues/commits without modifying the
head commit sha1 (and therefore not screwing up everybody
cloning/branching off the repositories).
