The example I've found was

2012-08-17  Jan Beich  <address@hidden>  (tiny change)

        * configure.ac (PTY_OPEN): Try posix_openpt on gnu-linux,
        gnu-kfreebsd, freebsd, and netbsd.  (Bug#12040)

in the top-level ChangeLog.  He's not in etc/AUTHORS, though 2012-08-17
is much before the 24.3 release.  These changes have been committed on
that very date (by you).

Anyway, after regenerating with M-x authors, he's in.
