As others have said, the one(s) of the author(s). I just wanted to add the
information that this is documented in the Coding Standards, sec. 6.8.2,
especially the last part
When you install someone else's changes, put the contributor's name in the
change log entry rather than in the text of the entry. In other words, write this:
2002-07-14 John Doe <email@example.com>
* sewing.c: Make it sew.
rather than this:
2002-07-14 Usual Maintainer <firstname.lastname@example.org>
* sewing.c: Make it sew. Patch by email@example.com.
As for the date, that should be the date you applied the change.
