Show the last author of a node in the Drupal content list

Instead of showing the original author of a node, show the last person to edit it.

Show "last edited by" on the Drupal admin/content view

Drupal's content listing at admin/content shows us the creator of a node, but does not allow us to add a field to show us the last person who edited the node. 

I did some Googling for it, and it turns out the ability during the latter stages of Drupal 8 development, but I wasn't aware of it. I'd like to see this added to the default admin/content view so we wouldn't have to figure it out.

So ... here's how to do it:

  1. Create a relationship to the The user ID of the author of the current revision.
  2. Then use that relationship in the fields you want to show.
