Well, usually our appreciation of well written code happens at levels well above a couple lines. The reality is if you are motivated enough to run a command and review its mundane output in order to pin point specifically who last changed a particular line of code, chances are it's because there is something wrong with that particular line of code, rather than because you appreciate how it's written, so...

That said, maybe some neutral term would be better, like git author.
