No comment on this particular edit, but

here is something that I do find a bit odd as a new Mercurial
user who watches how Mercurial itself is used on the crew repo:

You edited a changeset originally created by Steve, but your
edit is invisible and is merged with Steve's edit and credited
to Steve alone.

I would normally expect that each edit is transparently credited
to whoever made it?

So I wonder why you didn't make two changesets of this.
One with Steve's original patch, followed by your edit.

Just an observation. Possibly a very bad example here since your edit
is certainly good. But for me it looks a bit like someone signs
something using the signature of somebody else. A bit like using
the wrong sender address in an email. Something I really wouldn't like
to do myself.

On another note, it seems that repository pullers will never know who
pushed the change into crew by looking into the crew repo alone.
An information that would be nice to have as well.
