Many thanks.

Mentioning the author's name is important, whoever the author is, unless
it was the committer that performed the work. Some people get paid to
submit patches in various ways, others request time from their
employers, some people just for fun. The author credit proves that time
was well spent and will help ensure we get more patches from that
source, so its good for everybody that this happens for all patches.
