For future reference, you can set (or reset) the author of a commit

	git commit --author='Salvatore Bonaccorso <carnil@debian.org>'


	git commit --amend --author='Salvatore Bonaccorso <carnil@debian.org>'

before pushing.  Once you've pushed, it's history, though.

Thanks.  Policy should probably just say something like

	These files can be read using
	<tt>dpkg-query --control-show <var>package</var> shlibs</tt>.
