I always try to add credits to Copyright.txt when I check patches in

Though to be fair, it is in the directions for how to submit your
patch to make sure you add your name to Copyright.txt and add that to
Credits.rtf I don't really touch, but what Eric said seems reasonable

our best, and if people would follow the directions on the wiki, this
problem wouldn't happen as much.
