Hi Kalle,

I logged into my patchwork account but I don't see any way to set the
name.  Within 'profile' there is only 'change password' and 'link
email'.  I thought I could unregister then re-register but I can't see
how to do that either.  Is there a maintainer of patchwork.kernel.org
who I can email to manually remove me from the system?

thanks,
Tobin.
