Yes, I had the same issue as well and sadly review board was not helpful for committing the
code. I had to do all the hacks like changing the author info, putting in signed off info
That is not the way to go. Either review board should have good integration with submitting
the git patches or we should switch to a tool which does.

Reviewboard removed author information is annoying. Otherwise git-am would do the trick(and
force contributor to respect coding style) well.

Anyway to download original file from Reviewboard? I don't think we're the only one got this

BTW, in Linux kernel community(and Xen/KVM), the original author is Author, and maintainer(committor
in our case) would do Signed-off-by: to indicate who accepted this patch. Probably we can
borrow some ideas here.
