I have no preference.  First or third person would work equally well
for me for this kind of thing.

Today I tried a "git shortlog" run and was surprised to find

  Brian M. Carlson (6):
      Add missing test file for UTF-16.
      submodule: fix confusing variable name
      submodule: don't print status output with ignore=all
      send-email: don't call methods on undefined values
      http-backend: provide Allow header for 405
      remote-curl: fix large pushes with GSSAPI

These commits use author Brian M. Carlson <sandals@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>.
Previously they matched

	brian m. carlson <sandals@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> <sandals@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

but now they don't match any line in the .mailmap file.

Should we add a line

	brian m. carlson <sandals@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

to handle these commits?
