Subject Re: Write access to github mirror

Hi Benedikt,

thanks for the hint. :)

My knowledge of git is very limited, so excuse me if I'm wrong, did you 
use the--no-ff to create this commit:


I'm asking, because github shows you as the author of the commit. That 
is something I would like to avoid (if possible), because I believe it's 
detrimental to the motivation of contributers.

- Pascal

By the way: I really wish I would be able to contribute as much to open 
source as you do. Congrats! :)
