#7317: Revision function displays incorrect user

Changes (by mdawaffe):

  * status:  new => assigned


 In an attempt to track who did what, we're currently versioning the
 post_author field: storing how the author has changed over time.  This is
 the wrong thing to do and is causing this bug.

 We should instead be storing the user_id of the person who made the
 revision in the post_author field.
