porting/authors.t .. Failed 1/898 subtests

Test Summary Report
-------------------
porting/authors.t (Wstat: 0 Tests: 898 Failed: 1)
   Failed test:  299
Files=1, Tests=898, 10 wallclock secs ( 0.27 usr  0.02 sys +  5.45 cusr 
  0.92 csys =  6.66 CPU)
Result: FAIL

This is occurring because I applied this commit:

commit 77a9214240d18319141bf575acd42fdf4ca3d9c7
Author: reneeb <github@renee-baecker.de>

... without thinking about updating AUTHORS.

Now, it turns out that RĂ©nee is already in AUTHORS, but sans acute 
accent and from a different email address:

$ grep -n Baecker AUTHORS
928:Renee Baecker          <module@renee-baecker.de>

So what's the best way to make the test pass without creating a 
misleading duplicate entry in AUTHORS?

Thank you very much.
