Correct. All packages that were flagged during the upgrade have a
timestamp of "Mon, 21 Feb 2011 09:23:39 +0000" (that's the moment I ran
the database upgrade script).

The submitter is the person who initially uploaded a package to the AUR.
That should be the first maintainer/contributor in most cases, but might
also be some Arch dev/TU who moved a package from [core], [extra] or
[community] to the AUR during some cleanup or whatever.
