I emailed Marton out-of-band, but I am not in the list because a few of 
my recent commits
were pushed by Timo instead of me pushing them directly. My authored 
list is 23 commits
but 4 were pushed by Timo, so Marton's command line returns '19' for me.

I said that if we are excluding people without commit rights, then we 
need to correctly
assign commit ownership when the author and committer both have commit 
rights to avoid
