The maintainer is not the first listed in the ChangeLog

Dear users, community, $people,

I receive more or less two mail per week, so I decided to point this out.

I know that my activity is notable in the ChangeLog because of the stabilization but the maintainer is not the first listed in the ChangeLog or somewhere.
Example:

# Copyright 1999-2013 Gentoo Foundation
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
# $Header: /var/cvsroot/gentoo-x86/app-accessibility/gnome-speech/gnome-speech-0.4.25-r1.ebuild,v 1.10 2013/02/02 22:18:46 ago Exp $

This part says that I’m just the last man that has touched this ebuild.

02 Feb 2013; Agostino Sarubbo gnome-speech-0.4.25-r1.ebuild:
Add ~arm, wrt bug #449220

This part says that I’ve added the ~arm keyword.

In both cases I have touched but I’m not the maintainer.

If you are looking for the maintainer:
cat /usr/portage/$category/$package/metadata.xml

Thanks.

      The system could be improved, but who is doing something like this is not familiar with any Concurrent Versioning System.
