I have not had a substantial commit to gcc [or, likely, post to this

1999-2009. Every "git log" entry for my commits looked fine. There
were two odd cases, but both now make sense to me. My first commit's
Author line (1999) contains a physical machine name (but it correctly
matches the contemporary Changelog entry). The second odd case took
more time to understand:
In gcc-reposurgeon-7a, commit hash 16fc918929 ; I corrected a prior
Changelog (for 89903bf801). I would not expect any version control
system translation process to look ahead for such textual changes to a
side-maintained ChangeLog file but I was somewhat stumped on why the
ChangeLog text did not match the "git log" text.
We can add a correction so that the git 'Author' field will be fixed, if
you would like; but the ChangeLog and commit message will remain as is.
