I am extremely sorry for my mistakes. It won't happen again.

It was my first patch, so I had very little idea of forming commit messages. 
I will discuss it with mentors next time before sending the patch next time.

> Ayush, you did not sign-off with your full legal name.

My legal name according to all official identification documents of India is Ayush. 
I have no surname registered legally.
So should I include "Ayush <ayush at disroot.org>"  or do I need to include my last name too (Which is Ayush only)?

Please accept my apology.

Thanks,
Ayush
