That's precisely the problem when syncing packages, since syncs have in Changed-By the person who requested the sync, and not the person who did the changes.

For example, I've been requesting syncs for gdl, and I'm listed as the author of 0.7.10-1, where it was Rob Bradford who did it (and has done for almost all the uploads listed in that page, but he's only credited in one).
