The git repository is a bit of a second-class citizen because our

If/when that happens, will you also consider accepting contributions
using git pull requests or patches sent using git-send-email?  This has
the nice property of preserving the original author on the commit,
without them having commit access to the main repository.

We recommend attaching patches to bug reports at bugs.wireshark.org,
otherwise they tend to get lost. However, this shouldn't keep us from
preserving author information when the original author and committer are
both using git. This appears to be what GNOME Project does:


BTW, the page mentions a Bugzilla integration module for Git which might
make our workflow easier:
