I can accept that if the change from my submission is commented
in the commit message. (I sometimes do that with other people's
patches.) But this was modified without comment.

Giving credit for authorship is important, but it is also
important not to say someone is the sole author of something
when they aren't and haven't approved the subsequent changes
(cf. Alan Smithee).
