You probably want to use tacacs for this rather than rely on the text 
inside rancid.

Rancid gets that data from devices (like cisco) who will say who last 
saved the config. So imagine user x saves config, user y saves more 
config, then rancid runs. The changes by both users x and y will be 
attributed to y.

With tacacs you can turn on per command accounting and probably stream 
that to centralised logging to make it more manageable.
