Umm, that's not quite how those lines are meant to be used. 

Submitted by: Rasmus Lerdorf

would have been correct, it's obvious you're the one committing it because
there's a line with your name in it. The "Obtained from:" line is to
attribute sources you grab code from such as NCSA or something without
them actually "submitting" it to you. We added the "Obtained from" line
because the NetBSD folks always used to complain when we nicked fixes from
them and didn't attribute them for it in the commit message.
