Don't know about this wording thing, but as a Wikipedia author, I have to say 
that I do not think that attributing me in this way is sufficient. As a 
Wikimedian, I believe that a lot of people will feel the same. And as a 
programmer, I do not see why is this controversy necessary at all, as a 
number of people have presented a variety of solutions that make it possible 
to analyse the revisions and extract authors with satisfying accuracy.
