I might sound harsh but I believe that to ease out this process, at 
least for the future, it could be time for the committers to actually 
commit with the author's name (git commit --author=insert_name) and drop 
the all "patch by someone" nonsense. If the guys taking care of the 
Linux kernel can do this with 20 times as much contributors as Blender, 
the Blender guys can do this.

Commit etiquette, simple stuff.
