Sure.  I understand that.  But please do what I am saying?

Also I feel like there should be a tag for bugfixes to a patch like:

Fixes-from: Michael Zoran <mzoran at crowfest.net>

A good deal of my work gets folded into the original patches and I don't
get any sort of credit that you can measure for it.  I've lobbied for
the Fixes-from: tag for a while...  It would only cover bug fixes not
bike shedding or style issues.
