I think the question is why we are retaining this Reported-by header
to begin with. Even though the early feedback is appreciated,
crediting the bot for eternity for a version of the patch that never
got merged seems a bit excessive. Also, it may suggest that the bot
was involved in reporting an issue that the patch aims to fix but that
is not the case. The last thing we want is Sasha's bot to jump on
patches adding new functionality just because it has a reported-by
line.

So I suggest dropping the Reported-by credit as well as the [] context
regarding v1
