Tobin, your name in is just "tcharding" then it should be
"Tobin C. Harding". Patchwork is braindead in a way as it takes the name from
it's database instead of the From header of the patch in question.

I can fix that manually but it would be helpful if you could register to
patchwork and fix your name during registration. You have only one chance to
fix your name (another braindead feature!) so be careful :)
