If you mean adding that in source file headers, that's frowned upon at Apache.

The problem is that down the line people might contact person A
directly instead of talking to this list - person A might not want to
get direct queries, and it's good for everybody to see other's
questions.

Also, "svn annotate" (or
http://svnsearch.org/svnsearch/repos/ASF/search?path=incubator%2Fflex%2Ftrunk)
is a much more precise way of knowing who wrote which code, for the
rare cases when that's needed.
