Read the above single line and nothing else, while pretending you do
not know what this patch is about at all.  That is what readers of
"git shortlog" will see.

It may be obvious for you, but can you tell whose socket the series
has updated in 6 months after forgetting what you worked on?  The
title does not give any hint that this is about the credential cache
daemon.
