No, but it is confusing.

The `--since` and `--until` flags use the committer date, not the author
date. Try `git log --pretty=fuller`, and you will see that the author
and committer dates do not match for the top two commits (their
committer date is within 5 years).

Usually the two dates are the same, but they can be different if a
commit is rebased, or applied via patch.
