Okay, I've added ikeydoherty to the list of committers, please just
push to the pisi backend without asking :)

On the maintainer/author issue, I see this as the basic ground rules:

./MAINTAINERS = people who maintain PackageKit as a whole (i.e. me :)
./AUTHORS = people who have changed/added a significant number of
lines of code. Lets say 50 as a guide
./backends/*/pk-backend-*.* - if you're the maintainer of the backend,
i.e. you want to be contacted if anyone has any problems, please add
yourself to the list in the backend file, e.g.

const gchar *
pk_backend_get_author (PkBackend *backend)
	return "Richard Hughes <richard at hughsie.com>\nAnyone Else <foo at bar.com>";
