[geeklog-devel] Credits to ourselves?

Dirk, are you thinking there would be a 1 line comment added to the changed
file header documenting the change and author?

I agree that a comment standard with the develper name is a good idea.
The question is do we want to really add this to the header of each file - I
suspect no.
My changes are mostly noted in the history doc and I have not had a problem
with the current method.
