The problem with this is that when you have several people and 
only one has cvs access, their name comes up again and again.

You might try looking at the msgstr corresponding to the 
"translator_credits" msgid. I think that's more likely to 
be correct.

Or grep the Changelog. Entries such as

2003-01-01  CVS Access Translator  <>

  * xx.po:  Updated translation from Non-CVS Access Name Here

...are not at all uncommon.

I have seen slightly erroneous release notes where people have
used the name of the person who committed it without looking to
see whether what they committed was theirs or someone else's,
so I think this is worth mentioning.
