git patches are formatted like an e-mail, and the author is whoever is
in the From: field

Example on x264 git repository:

% git show --pretty=full c9dad9e1508a4d|head   
commit c9dad9e1508a4d430b9bab72c8875892cf7fef3c
Author: Anton Mitrofanov <BugMaster at narod.ru>
Commit: Jason Garrett-Glaser <darkshikari at gmail.com>

    Improve flash detection algorithm change in r1765
    Now only disables scenecuts only near real end of video, not just
    prior to forced keyframes.

diff --git a/encoder/slicetype.c b/encoder/slicetype.c
index 2d4a0f0..dc02fbd 100644
--- a/encoder/slicetype.c

I added the --pretty=full to have the "Commit:" field, by default only
the Author is shown.

If people sending patches use git formatted patches, authorship is
If they don't you can ask that they change their habits, and use git
commit --author="John Doe foo at bar.org" when adding their changes to
your tree.
