Nobody's, I fear. There was a rather longish discussion which resulted
in the decision to not show all the "edit clutter" to people which
aren't logged in. When I looked at how to do that, the only choice
seemed to be to "turn off everything" for those users.

Regarding a policy:

If you write a larger article (HowTos) and want to be attributed, put
your name somewhere in the article. But I don't see any need to enforce
this as a policy.
