If master and develop do not share commits (as I believe they will not
under git-flow): branch off develop, merge the pull request to the
branch, then rebase it on develop, preserving the contributor
information but also making it clean. Again, this is something that is
trivial for the developer to do and more than should be expected of
contributing users. This sort of thing is exactly what git-rebase is for.
