Thinking about attribution. Right now, we have it so that the committer is logged as the patch author in mercurial, and the patch author is listed in the text of the commit message.

I wonder how much work it would be to have the author be in the mercurial log, and the committer noted in the text for accountability.

On the one hand, it would be easier to pull out a list of names for statistics! On the other hand, some commits need to be attributed to multiple people, and there's no way to log multiple authors for a patch other than just listing them all (which wouldn't help with statistics).

Eh, hm.
