Hi Daniel and Peter
Sorry to disturb you. Actually we (me and Lukas) were planning to
introduce a fix for suggesting users to use "Co-developed-by" tag over
"Co-authored-by" and I noticed that you have earlier used
I feel that users perhaps use this tag as they are unaware of its
standard equivalent tag, "Co-developed-by"
Do you think that this fix will be beneficial for future users? If so,
can you please add your Acked-by to the patch?
