Nice. Thanks for picking up the slack here :D One day this folder will
be marked as fully read on my system :D

For future reference you can use GIT_AUTHOR_NAME and GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL
env vars to force a commit by someone else such as with these patches
which is slightly nicer for attribution  (even tho' you do mention them
in the message, keeping the author is often nice).
