Let us start with the simpler patch and then see if you can write a commit

Okay. If you say so, I cannot judge but you should try to use a name that 
others can with a fair chance uniquely identify that is you.

The name is used in git log summaries, pull requests, etc.; so, it should 
be a name that with high chance to refer to one person.

Maybe you find a good way that works as suitable name for 
unique identification?
