[Catalog-sig] Does registering a python distribution makes it you the author?

Hi everyone,

I've packaged and uploaded a project on PyPI, without being the author 
of it. I've set up the correct fields (author and author_email) in the 
setup.py to the real author, but PyPI states I'm the author anyway, 
maybe because it's linking it to the PyPI account I've used to do the 

The PyPI page is here: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/peinard/0.1, and the 
setup.py is here: https://raw.github.com/feth/peinard/master/setup.py

It doesn't look like an intended behaviour: is it something known and is 
there a way to fix it?
