Currently, only committers are allowed to use a different author
line.  This is because the author line is what we report for
attribution in the project's IP logs, so we need to be reasonably
certain that the author line is correct for the foundation's records.

You need to change the author in your commit to be you, but maybe
add a "Also-by: ..." line in the footer of the commit message.

E.g. `git commit --amend --author 'Dariusz Luksza <dariusz.luksza@xxxxxxxxx>'`
