How should that work? Not all VCS store such information on the client.

Also even if a project is being written by multiple people, the one
adding some code technically has the copyright on it and may add his
name/email as author. Someone coming in later and changing significant
parts of the code again should add his name/email. I know thats not
practicable in companies and there's usually just a company-copyright,
but the above does not necessarily have to be mandatory. If author/email
are empty the info could just be left away.
