I don't know if it's rigorous policy, but I follow the convention
that Paul B used when he was committing my patches for me. If
I commit someone else patch, I include that persons name in the
Changelog along with mine. The intent is to give credit to the
person responsible for developing the patch and to give the name
of the person to blame for actually committing the patch.
