Can't we just use "Author: Joe <joe>, Jane <jane>" ?

How are we supposed to remember this one (and make sure it's typed
Could we use "Author: Joe <joe> (tiny change)"?

I don't see why not. I suppose someone could modify the build-aux/gitlog-to-changelog script to do both things. That script is copied from Gnulib -- I didn't change it. I'll CC: this to Jim Meyering (who wrote that script) to see what he thinks about the suggestion.
