It seems to be the case, for instance, in lisp/ChangeLog.17 contains:

    2015-04-05  Pete Williamson  <address@hidden>  (tiny-change)
    
        Fix .emacs and .emacs.d/init file recursion problem for NaCl
        * files.el (file-truename): Add NaCl to the exception list ms-dos uses.

and ChangeLog also has many references to lisp/files.el, like the
following one:

    2016-01-16  Artur Malabarba  <address@hidden>

        * lisp/files.el (dir-locals--all-files): Respect absolute file-names

        * lisp/help-fns.el (describe-variable): Fix a left-over parenthesis


The resulting etc/AUTHORS file contains the following entries:

    Artur Malabarba: wrote character-fold-tests.el faces-tests.el
      isearch-tests.el let-alist.el simple-test.el sort-tests.el
      tabulated-list-test.el
    and changed package.el isearch.el character-fold.el files.el
      tabulated-list.el package-test.el faces.el files-x.el menu-bar.el
      replace.el align.el bytecomp.el help-fns.el cl-lib-tests.el custom.el
      custom.texi map.el simple.el subr-tests.el variables.texi bindings.el
      and 37 other files

   [...]
   
    Pete Williamson: changed configure.ac files.el leim/Makefile.in
      lib-src/Makefile.in lisp/Makefile.in
