Changing name in AUTHORS?
Message ID:
Sorry if this message isn't appropriate for P5P, but I'm unsure where else to ask.

I thought my last PR ( was my first PR. Apparently, it's not. Karl Williamson wrote, in response to me asking if I should add my name to AUTHORS (because a test was failing):

Turns out that this name is:

    Curtis Poe <>

That company ceased to exist almost two decades ago, driven into bankruptcy by the 9/11 attack (seriously). However, my MR was submitted with:

    Ovid  <>

I think the above name and email are more likely to be permanent. Is just adding `Ovid <>` sufficient? I anticipate submitting many more PRs for tests for the Corinna project and I don't want my name to be something people with commit bits have to stumble on.
