I'm looking now a commit in the Date range separator should be translatable issue and I don't see the commit message like:

alexpott committed a55967d on 8.3.x authored by mpdonadio

And mpdonadio has submitted a working patch but the message is:

alexpott committed a55967d on 8.3.x

So, I search in other issues to see what happens and I don't see any authored in message when the issue is related to Drupal core.

I remember that when I create a patch to Drupal Entity module the maintainer recognized my work:

clemens.tolboom committed f594060 on 8.x-6.x authored by adriancid

So, why don't contributors get author attribution for Drupal core issues?

    Many people worked on that issue "Issue #2796151 by mpdonadio, jhedstrom, myLies, vijaycs85, lomasr, alexpott, Gábor Hojtsy, penyaskito, catch, xjm: Date range separator should be translatable". I started to write up an answer and then realized that I don't think this is officially documented so I don't want to give out wrong information. IIRC, part of the problem has to do with git only allowing a single "author" for a patch. – mpdonadio Mar 12 '17 at 16:18
  • @mpdonadio and if only one user create the issue and publish the only patch that solve the problem? – Adrian Cid Almaguer Mar 19 '17 at 2:41
  • @Adrian Cid Almaguer, this would be unfairly to those who work on other "multiuser" issues. – ya.teck Apr 27 '17 at 11:52
  • @ya.teck I just trying to know how this works. – Adrian Cid Almaguer Apr 27 '17 at 15:55
