Doing that shouldn't change the author, at least in my experience. I 
constantly 'git fetch' or 'git review -d <change>' to fetch a patch, 
update it, and push a new revision. When I do that, the author stays the 
same but it shows me as the "Committer".

I have seen the behavior Matt describes happen to other people though 
and I would guess it has something to do with the rebase. Though I feel 
like I've also rebased other people's changes and it didn't change the 
Author, it only changed the Committer to me.
