When you merge a branch "foo-branch" into another branch "bar-
branch", the merge commit on bar-branch will be authored by whoever
commits the merge. In your log message, you should say something like
"Merging revisions 42-96 of foo-branch into bar-branch." Then anyone
looking at the log of bar-branch who wants to know more about those
changes can go look up the log of foo-branch, where the original
authors of the changes are still recorded.
