   I think it's more common to credit original author in the ChangeLog
   itself.  Though, rereading GNU coding guidelines might help there ;)

It isn't stated in the GCS, different project use different methods.
Coreutils for example notes who the creator of a particular program is
in both the --version output, and the source file.  Ditto for the Hurd
(see the "Written by ..." stuff at the top of most files).

But the general rule I guess is that for small things, you just note
it in the ChangeLog; and this is one such case.
