The author is a part in the patch's global hash name, so
you can't (hopefully!) change the author and still have the
"same" patch.

It would be possible to rebuild the repo with new patches using
a different author, but the new repo would be incompatible
with the old one, and there is no automated way (that I know
of) to do this rebuilding.
