I know you add lots of Cc: lines
when you pick up patches, but I think
your script can be improved.

You added "Cc: Douglas Anderson <dianders@...omium.org>",
but Douglas is the author.
I think the author should be excluded from Cc.




This commit looks as follows in linux-next:

commit 685dc1264544c947d26963dcf1ac982d3408f444

    kdb: det rid of broken attempt to print CCVERSION in kdb summary

    If you drop into kdb and type "summary", it prints out a line that says
    this:

      ccversion  CCVERSION

    ...and I don't mean that it actually prints out the version of the C
    compiler.  It literally prints out the string "CCVERSION".

    The version of the C Compiler is already printed at boot up and it doesn't
    seem useful to replicate this in kdb.  Let's just delete it.  We can also
    delete the bit of the Makefile that called the C compiler in an attempt to
    pass this into kdb.  This will remove one extra call to the C compiler at
    Makefile parse time and (very slightly) speed up builds.
