Thanks for being interested in this year's GSoC and doing a microproject.

If you take a look at c6f44e1da5 ("t9813: avoid using pipes",
2017-01-04) you can see the following:

    - it changes only one test file: t9813-git-p4-preserve-users.sh
    - its title starts with "t9813: "

It would have been nice if you did the same in your patch (that is
only change one test file and start the patch title with the test file

On the microproject page, we say:

"Students: Please attempt only ONE microproject. We want quality, not quantity!"

And to other students working on a microproject, we also ask them to
focus on only one test file when they make those kinds of changes.
