The Signed-off-by is Jeff Chan here.

The email has different case, not sure if that matters.  But the 
name format likley does.

You can control the format of the author and committer via 
git config --global  "Jeff Chan"
git config --global Jeff9_Chan at

You can amend the author with git commit --amend --reset-author

Hope this helps,
