[Rd] author field in Rd documentation

Apologies if this is a non question, but I am trying to document some
functions, where the author of the function itself is different from the
author of the Rd file (one person did the programming, the other dealt with
the documentation).

In the Writing R Extensions document, section 2.1.1 Documenting functions,
it is written:

\author{...} Information about the author(s) of the Rd file.

Is there another field for the author of the function? Usually, they are
one and the same, but (as in this case) they might be different.

Any suggestion is welcome,
