Yes, you could well be right.

"Credit where credit's due" [excuse the pun]... Linus has made
_numerous_ attempts to help resolve these BS issues.
Not least of all the link above which struck me (even at the time)
as an amicable compromise to the "uncredited work" scenario.

I immediately jumped to the inference that Linus means
"crediting people ...won't happen again" (from "there" meaning "the
above link")
...he could well have meant, "eschewing creditation ...won't happen again"
